The importance of a peaceful end to the war in Ukraine was also discussed at the meeting between Viktor Orbán and Donald Trump on Tuesday.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán held talks with former US President Donald Trump on Tuesday.
In a Facebook video, Viktor Orbán called Donald Trump an important ally of Hungary. “We are both committed to fighting illegal migration, we are both committed to low taxes, and most importantly, we are both committed to peace.” The Prime Minister said the only antidote to war-inflation and war-economic crisis is peace.
“But peace can only be created by strong leaders, thus it is in our interest here in Ukraine’s neighborhood that the United States is strong,” he explained.
Viktor Orbán stressed that Donald Trump respects and values Hungarians. “Our cooperation has been good in the past, and we can hope that it will be good in the future. I wish him good luck,” he added.
Donald Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social:
“Great spending time with my friend Viktor Orbán, the Prime Minister of Hungary. We discussed many interesting topics – few people know as much about what is going on in the world today. We were also celebrating his great electoral victory in April.”
The meeting took place at the former President’s Bedminster, New Jersey estate and was attended by Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, Balázs Orbán, the Prime Minister’s Political Director, Zsolt Németh, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Assembly, Susie Wiles, Save America Director, Brian Jack, Advisor and Taylor Budowich, Save America Communications Director.
Both Viktor Orbán and Donald Trump are set to speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas this week.
“They both understand that we should not be controlled by the radical, woke corporatists or the billionaires who think regular people cannot be trusted to make their own decisions,” CPAC told The Hill in an earlier statement.
Miklós Szánthó, Director of the Center for Fundamental Rights (Alapjogokért Központ), CPAC’s Hungarian partner and the organizer of the CPAC Hungary in Budapest in May will also speak at the Dallas event. In an interview with Origo.hu, he called CPAC the nightmare of globalists.
