“I am not Donald Trumpʼs campaigner,” Orbán said, according to the Associated Press. “I never thought that the idea would ever occur to me that he is the better of the open options for Europe and Hungary. I listened to (Trump) and I have to tell you that he made three proposals to stop terrorism. And as a European I myself could not have drawn up better what Europe needs.”
In 2011, when Hillary Clinton was the U.S. secretary of state, she visited Hungary and criticized Orbánʼs government, saying it interfered in freedom of the press and the judiciary.
The prime minister mentioned Trump and his candidacy in his regular speech during the annual retreat held by his Fidesz party in Baile Tusnad, Romania every summer.
