Former United States President Donald Trump has sought the help of far-right Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to boost his campaign.
According to the Guardian – quoted by a Hungarian government official – the invitation has already been sent to Trump, but has not yet responded to the request. The invitation comes as Orban enters the race for the national ballot box set up on April 3, with him and his party (Fintez) having a difficult task, as he will be called upon to face a coalition of opposition parties.
“People in Fidez would really like Trump to visit Budapest in March,” the source said, expecting the Republican politician and businessman to make a decisive contribution to Orban's re-election.
If Trump finally accepts the invitation, it will be his first trip outside the United States since losing the 2020 presidential election. and for this reason he prefers not to travel.
Orban is a staunch supporter of Trump, as he sided with him in both the summer of 2016 and 2020. The two politicians spoke by telephone last January, with Trump “reciprocating the favor”, publicly supporting Orban in view of the April elections. Of course, Trump's live visit to Hungary is expected to give a big boost to the Hungarian politician.
