Details: Trump said that Orbán was a "non-controversial figure because he says, ‘This is the way it’s going to be,’ and that’s the end of it," Trump said.

"Right? He’s the boss. No – he’s a great leader, fantastic leader," he added.

Background:

  • Orbán met with Trump in the US state of Florida. The two discussed a "wide range of issues affecting Hungary and the United States, including the paramount importance of strong and secure borders to protect the sovereignty of each nation", according to a Trump campaign statement.

  • After the meeting, Orbán praised Trump, saying that if he were to return to power, "the world would be a better place".
