Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban publicly expressed his support for former US President Donald Trump on Twitter on Monday ahead of his court appearance on Tuesday.
Trump is accused of falsifying business documents related to the silencing of porn actress Stormy Daniels on the eve of the 2016 US presidential election.
“We are ready for this fight. And I look forward to moving forward as quickly as possible to exonerate him,” said Trump’s lawyer Joe Tacopina, as the former president continues to deny he did anything wrong.
From Hungary, Orban sent Trump words of support and encouragement via Twitter on Monday: “Keep fighting, Mr. President! We are with you.”
This message follows a long list of instances where Trump and Orban have exchanged messages of support. In January 2022, Trump published a letter praising Orban and supporting his re-election in the Hungarian elections in April 2022.
“He’s done a strong and excellent job protecting Hungary, stopping illegal immigration, creating jobs and trade, and he should be allowed to continue to do so in the upcoming election. He is a strong leader who is respected by all,” Trump wrote.
Trump welcomed Orban to the White House in 2019, a symbolic welcome for a prime minister who often clashes with European Union leadership and was disparaged by President Joe Biden and Trump’s predecessor Obama.
Trump is confident that Russia will win the war
Former US President Donald Trump has repeatedly spoken favorably of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. Recently, Trump made another controversial statement.
In an interview with Fox News, the former president said that he got along “very well” with Putin.
The Republican said that if he had remained in office, there would have been no war in Ukraine. Trump is confident that he could have convinced the dictator not to attack Ukraine.
If I had been president, Putin would have been much better off because he would not have invaded Ukraine. However, he will eventually take over the whole of Ukraine,
– Trump said.
Not long ago, the former president called Putin “a smart man who wanted peace.”
Orban and Trump are looking for support from Russia to stay afloat. This is very dangerous and the world must react to such events.
