President Donald Trump praised Hungary’s action on curbing migration, saying Prime Minister Viktor Orban had “kept Hungary safe.”, during the latter’s visit to Washington.
On his part, Orban said he was proud to fight illegal migration and terrorism alongside the US
Speaking to media at the White House, Trump said the US “relationship is very good with Hungary.”
“I know he’s a tough man, but he’s a respected man,” Trump said, adding that people should look at some of the “tremendous” problems Europe is facing because “they’ve done things differently” to Hungary.
Like Trump, right-wing Orban has taken a hard line against migration. Orban has said he hopes he and Trump can coordinate that stance into a global alliance.
