Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán expressed his belief that only Donald Trump possesses the strength to bring an end to the war in Ukraine, citing Trump’s successful foreign policy record and leadership qualities.

Orbán criticized EU politicians and media for downplaying the potential benefits of a second Trump presidency for Europe, emphasizing the need to prioritize national interests.

He also criticized the EU’s imperialist tendencies and its push to expand into Ukraine.

“Peace has a name, that of Donald Trump,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said.

“We should not forget that Trump was one of the most successful foreign policy presidents of the United States. Not a single war was started by him. And the Abraham Accords were the only serious chance to generate peace, balance and an acceptable form of life in the very difficult Middle East region,” Orbán said.

“My personal conviction remains that if, in February 2022, the American president had been called Donald Trump, there would be no more war in Europe. Today I don’t see anyone other than him, neither in Europe nor in America, who is a leader strong enough to stop the war,” he said.

“Let’s go back to 2016, during his first campaign, before the election. At the time, everyone said that the election was won for Hillary Clinton and not for Donald Trump. I clearly said at that time that we needed Donald Trump in Europe,” Orbán said.

“Because when Trump says ‘Make America Great Again’ or ‘America First’, it legitimizes us to say ‘Make Europe Great Again’ and ‘Europe First’. Put Europe first, put France first, put Hungary first. This is the normal attitude in international politics, if we wish to find agreements based on the basis of national interest.”

“The European Union, in recent years, has increasingly moved in an imperialist direction, especially after the departure of the United Kingdom. It is less and less a community of sovereign states. More and more, no matter what treaty rights you have, no matter what reasonable arguments you put forward to them, they are trying to force you into something you don’t want,” Orbán said.

Orbán’s comments came amid Hungary’s apparent pressure to approve a significant EU cash program for Ukraine.

Trump, on the other hand, has consistently maintained his ability to swiftly end the Ukraine conflict if he were in office, a claim that has been openly questioned by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“I would have that war ended within 24 hours,” Trump said in early 2023. “That war would end within 24 hours. That war would never have started.”

“(Trump) is going to make decisions on his own, without … I’m not even talking about Russia, but without both sides, without us. If he says this publicly, that’s a little scary. I’ve seen a lot, a lot of victims, but that’s really making me a bit stressed,” Zelensky said.

“Because even if his idea (for ending the war) – that no one has heard yet – doesn’t work for us, for our people, he will do anything to implement his idea anyway. And this worries me a little.”
