 creating jobs, trade, and should be allowed to continue to do so in the upcoming Election.

A payback for Orbán’s support 

In July 2016, Viktor Orbán was himself the first European leader to officially support the candidacy of Donald Trump for the presidency of the United States. As president, Donald Trump received him on May 13, 2019 at the White House and praised him, saying: “Probably, like me, a little bit controversial, but that’s okay. That’s okay. You’ve done a good job and you’ve kept your country safe.

He’s done the right thing, according to many people, on immigration”, Trump also said at the time.
