Orban: He met Trump and expressed his admiration for him again

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban renewed his admiration for former US President Donald Trump after their meeting in Florida on Friday, describing the Republican businessman as a “president of peace.”

Orban said in statements that could be, “We Hungarians have only one thing to do, which is to honestly admit: The world will be better and it will be better for Hungary if Mr. President Donald Trump returns (to power).” This was heard in a video clip during his meeting with Trump at the businessman’s residence in Mar-a-Lago.

Orban said in a post on Facebook that during Trump's term in the White House, there was peace in the Middle East and Ukraine, and these wars would not exist today if (Trump) were president of the United States.

The Hungarian Prime Minister said that Trump “brought respect to the world and thus created conditions for peace,” expressing his hope that the Republican's return to the White House would revive bilateral trade relations.

Trump is seeking to win a second term as president and will enter the battle in the upcoming US presidential elections in November.

In a campaign appearance in Pennsylvania last night, current US President Joe Biden mocked the fact that Trump met with a head of government in Europe “who stated categorically that he does not believe democracy works.”

Orban's spokesman Bertalan Havasi said, according to the Hungarian news agency, that Trump and Orban plan to have dinner together and attend a concert. The meeting was also attended by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary, Péter Szijjártó.

Before their meeting, Orban also attended the conservative Heritage Foundation in Washington and met with Trump's former senior adviser, the well-known far-right Steve Bannon.

Trump and Orban regularly praise each other in public. Orban, Hungary's prime minister since 2010, was the only EU leader to publicly express support for Trump even before he was elected US president in the 2016 election.

The two populists share common political ideologies, with Bannon once referring to the Hungarian prime minister as “Trump before Trump.”

The Republican businessman has previously publicly expressed his admiration for a group of authoritarian leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Orban also maintains good relations with Putin and often opposes Western sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine.
