Iowa Congressmen Share Xmas Greetings from Hungarian Autocrat, for “Teal Donald Trump”


To celebrate Christmas Eve, Congressman Steve King took to Twitter to share a “Christmas message” from his favorite European nationalist, the autocratic Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, as quoted by the far-right website Voice of Europe.

Meanwhile, Sen. Chuck Grassley took the occasion to wish the president merry Christmas, accidentally misspelling his Twitter handle to call him Teal Donald Trump.

Grassley later corrected his tweet.
