WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump will welcome Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban at the White House on May 13, where they will discuss trade, energy, and national security, the White House said on Tuesday.

Orban is a nationalist leader who has often clashed with the European Union over his anti-immigration campaigns and judicial reforms. He clashed with the administration of former U.S. President Barack Obama, a Democrat, over what critics said was an erosion of democratic values by his government.
