Former U.S. President Donald Trump praised Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán after the Hungarian leader called for Trump to be reelected in 2024 during an interview with Tucker Carlson that garnered over 50 million views.

“Viktor Orbán is a great leader and man. The wonderful people of Hungary are lucky to have him!’ Trump wrote on the Truth Social network.

During the interview, Orbán praised former President Donald Trump’s foreign policy and vision, saying that if the United States wanted peace, it could be achieved by the “next morning,” because Ukraine could not survive without Western help.

“The solution is in the hands of your president,” Orbán said.

“He (Donald Trump) had the best foreign policy in decades. He did not initiate another war. He dealt well with North Korea and Russia, even China, and pursued a policy that was the best for the Middle East,” Orbán said, adding that if Trump had been president at the moment the Russian invasion started, the Russians would not have been able to do it.

Orbán has praised Trump on many previous occasions and supported his reelection in 2020.
