There will be no wars in Ukraine and the Middle East with Trump – Hungary's Prime Minister Orban believes so. After a meeting at Mar-a-Lago, he sang his praises. Criticism comes from US President Biden.

They share many views and have been friends for years: Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orb├ín and former US President Donald Trump. Orban has now met with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida and hailed him as the “president of peace” after the meeting.

In a video message on Facebook titled “Hungary needs peace. His name: Donald Trump,” Orban said: “We Hungarians have only one thing to honestly admit: the world will be better, and it will be better for Hungary.” President Donald Trump is back (to power). If it comes.”

During Trump's tenure, there was peace in the Middle East and Ukraine, and if Trump was president, these wars wouldn't exist today, Orban continued. Trump “brought respect in the world and thereby created an environment for peace.” He also expects Trump's return to the White House to lead to a revival in bilateral trade relations.

Trump: “Orban is amazing”

Orban previously shared a photo with Trump, writing: “Make America great again, Mr. President.”

In a speech captured on video, Trump praised the guest: “There's no one better, smarter or better leader than Victor Orban. He's amazing.” If Orban says something, it happens, Trump continued. “He's the boss.”

Before meeting Trump, Orban appeared at the conservative Heritage Foundation in Washington and at a meeting with far-right propagandist Steve Bannon, a former adviser to Trump.

Biden rails against Orban

US President Joe Biden strongly criticized the meeting. “Do you know who he's seeing at Mar-a-Lago today?” he asked on the campaign trail in Philadelphia. Orban, from Hungary, has said he doesn't believe democracy works and is a fan of authoritarianism. Biden added: “I see a future where we protect democracy, not weaken it.”

Trump wants to be president again

Trump and Orban have been very public about each other. Orban was the only head of government from an EU country to openly support the Republican Party before Trump was elected president in 2016. Both have a lot of similarities politically.

Bannon once described the Hungarian as “Trump before Trump.” Orban has been in power in Hungary since 2010.

Trump wants to run against Biden in the Nov. 5 election and is headed for another nomination as the Republican presidential nominee. Given Trump's authoritarian tendencies, Biden describes the election as a lucky one for American democracy.
