He is a strong leader and respected by all. He has my Complete support and Endorsement for reelection as Prime Minister!” Trump’s endorsement of Orbán is not the first time the former president has backed the political campaign of a populist foreign leader accused of eroding democratic norms and embracing authoritarian governance. Last October, Trump announced his support for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s reelection bid. President Joe Biden, by contrast, has taken a tougher line against Orbán. Ahead of his virtual Summit for Democracy last month, Hungary was the only European Union member state to which the president did not extend an invitation. Despite Orbán’s undermining of democratic institutions, prominent far-right figures in the United States have increasingly championed his leadership. Last August, Fox News host Tucker Carlson temporarily broadcast his primetime show from Budapest, where he interviewed and lavished praise on the prime minister." *** The largest online progressive news show in the world.
