On Monday, President Donald J. Trump met with Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban. USA Today reports:

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump praised Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban on Monday, saying he is doing a “tremendous job” despite outrage over the Eastern European leader’s crackdowns on Hungary’s judiciary and the country’s independent media.

“Viktor Orbán has done a tremendous job in so many different ways,” Trump said before a private meeting with him in the Oval Office. “Probably, like me, a little bit controversial, but that’s okay … You’ve done a good job and you’ve kept your country safe.”

The prime minister returned the favor by complimenting Trump and highlighting their similar hard-line positions on immigration.  

Following the meeting, Trump retweeted a post of a video clip from the meeting that originated from the White House Twitter account. It was captioned, “This afternoon, President Trump welcomed Prime Minister Viktor Orban of Hungary to the Oval Office.”
