The former president of the United States supports the current Hungarian Prime Minister’s reelection. The support has been expressed in a statement.
“Former President Donald Trump on Monday endorsed Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for reelection — throwing his support behind a far-right, nationalist leader who has defied America’s allies in Europe and moved to consolidate control over the media and judiciary.” – writes Politico.
The prestigious newspaper wrote their article based on a statement by Donald Trump. The writing published on 3rd of January 2022, which expresses support for Viktor Orbán states that
“Viktor Orbán of Hungary truly loves his Country and wants safety for his people. He has done a powerful and wonderful job in protecting Hungary, stopping illegal immigration, creating jobs, trade, and should be allowed to continue to do so in the upcoming Election. He is a strong leader and respected by all. He has my Complete support and Endorsement for reelection as Prime Minister!”
Politico draws attention to Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who seems to be supportive of the Hungarian Prime Minister as well. When he broadcast his show from Budapest in the past, according to Politico, “he interviewed and lavished praise on the prime minister.”
In our former article we wrote that many prominent American public figures and people related to politics were guests in Hungary and even met the Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán. One such example is Donald Trump’s vice-president, Mike Pence. He visited Hungary to attend the IV Demographic Summit in Budapest. The Prime Minister met him in the Carmelite monastery. Another example is Jeff Sessions, Minister of Justice under Trump’s presidency, who was invited to deliver a speech at Duna Intézet (Danube Institute).

The Hungarian Prime Minister is not the only leader Trump supports. Last October, Trump announced that he supports the reelection bid of the Brazilian President, Jair Bolsonaro.
As we wrote on November, 2021, the former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton talked about Hungary on MSNBC with Rachel Maddow. The topic was the “rise of authoritarians around the world and elements in the United States that exploit fears of change to manipulate their way into power.” Details HERE.
