(Belga) Former US President Donald Trump on Monday announced his “fullest support” for the re-election campaign of ultra-conservative Hungarian leader Vikor Orban, “a great leader, respected by all”.
Prime Minister Viktor Orban “wholeheartedly loves his country and seeks security for his people”, greeted Donald Trump in a very laudatory statement, calling for support for the sovereignist leader in the April 2022 elections, which promise to be extremely tight . Citing the “remarkable work” of Mr. Orban to “protect Hungary, curb illegal immigration, create jobs”, themes dear to the former US president, Donald Trump assured him of “his full support” . “He is a great leader, respected by all,” he said. When he was still in power, Donald Trump had received Mr. Orban in Washington, going against many European leaders, very critical of the positions of the Hungarian leader on migrants and LGBT people. Viktor Orban had meanwhile deplored the loss of “major international support” after the departure of Donald Trump from the White House. Standing out from the many international condemnations, he also called for “not to judge” the United States after the assault on the Capitol by supporters of the Republican billionaire. (Belga)
