Trump Endorses the Fascist Wannabe Dictator Viktor Orbán of Hungary Because – Of Course He Does

One of the most disturbing and destructive skid marks of Donald Trump’s ghastly occupancy of the White House was a foreign policy devoted to alienating America’s allies and embracing its enemies. He had a particularly perverse affinity for brutal tyrants such as Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, and Kim Jung Un, whose interests he always seemed to be pursuing.

Now in exile from Washington for the past year, Trump is demonstrating that nothing has changed. He is still in awe of the authoritarians whose unchecked dominance he so envied. On Monday Trump released a statement (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) officially endorsing the Hungarian fuehrer, Viktor Orbán. Trump gushed that…

“Viktor Orbán of Hungary truly loves his Country and wants safety for his people. He has done a powerful and wonderful job in protecting Hungary, stopping illegal immigration, creating jobs, trade, and should be allowed to continue to do so in the upcoming Election. He is a strong leader and respected by all. He has my Complete support and Endorsement for reelection as Prime Minister!”

The reasons Trump gives for his noxious endorsement are chillingly reminiscent of his praise for Putin and other oppressive strongmen. These despots are always portrayed by Trump as loving their country. Presumably it’s the same sort of love expressed by the insurrectionists sent by Trump to assault Congress on January 6, 2021. And naturally Trump is approving of the racist immigration policies of Orbán. However, he couldn’t be more wrong about the respect that he says Orbán enjoys. Quite the opposite. Orbán has antagonized and estranged his European neighbors.

What’s more, according to Human Rights Watch, Hungary’s parliament gave Orbán rights that allow him to rule “with unlimited power for an indefinite time.” He has the power now to strike down and/or implement laws by decree. And democratic elections have been suspended.

And if that isn’t bad enough, Orbán has consolidated control over the country’s judiciary and media. Reporters Without Borders has noted that oligarchs close to Hungary’s ruling Fidesz party control more than 80% of the media in the country, while private media is discriminated against and characterized as publishing “fake news.” No wonder Trump adores him.

It is not surprising, though, that Trump would pay tribute to Orbán. He is very likely taking his queues from Tucker Carlson of Fox News. Last August Carlson made a pilgrimage to Hungary to curtsy obediently before Orbán. Why wouldn’t he? The targets of Orbán’s hostility and lies are often the same as those that Trump and Fox News go after. CNN’s Jim Acosta reported on Carlson’s trek to the totalitarian dystopia.

So Trump is once again affirming that he is an anti-democratic, freedom-hating, friend to flagrant fascists. He even said so explicitly during his recent “Sexual Predators Tour” with Bill O’Reilly. Both Trump and O’Reilly had moments wherein they displayed their utter disgust for America. While discussing his record on foreign relations, Trump admitted that the world leaders he “got along best with were tyrants. For whatever reason, I got along great with them.”

“For whatever reason?” We know the reason. It’s because they are the people he relates to and most hopes to emulate. God forbid he ever gets another chance to. As the Republican co-chair of the House Select Committee investigating January 6th, Rep. Liz Cheney recently warned: Trump “clearly can never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again.”

  1. 1st off: What the hell makes Trump-a-stump think anyone gives a dam* if he endorses & supports Viktor Orban, nasty dick-tater of Hungary?!! Hungarians sure as hell don’t care what Trump thinks! No one outside his Party minions & “cult of assininity” gives a shit what that piss-poor Loser thinks…about anything!

    What “election”?? For, as you pointed out:
    “Hungary’s parliament gave Orbán rights that allow him to rule “with unlimited power for an indefinite time”….. And democratic elections have been suspended.”

    Swap-out the 1st 2 words of that for “America’s Congress”, & you have Trump & Rethug Party’s ultimate wet dream! (Along with full control of judiciary & media, that is.) In fact, that is exactly what the UN-American, ANTI-democracy, Retrumplican Party’s goal IS for our Country!! {There’s nothing wrong with dictatorship…as long as you are the dictating party!}
    And, that’s a goal they’re now well on their way to reaching! Soon!
    Unless Pres. Biden & Dems in Congress get forceful & pass SERIOUS Right to Vote & Election Security laws (not watered-down versions), & break – I mean twist – Manchin’s arm if have to, Hungary is USA’s future too! Ask the Hungarian People if they’re ‘free’, happy & living/doing well? Contrary to Trump’s rosy assertion, the people are not happy, well-fed & strong, and that is no democracy!

    • Exactly, why in buggery would Trump think anyone gave Sh*t One about his ‘endorsement’ of a bully and dictator? Tis indeed his ultimate wet dream, and what he was going for when he got voted out. But that’s his delusion – thinks everything revolves around him and the entire world hangs on his every word. If this ‘endorsement’ doesn’t wake his qult up, then nothing will. Have reposted this on Twitter with the greatest of glee and – let us not forget – darling ickle Ivanka and Don Strumpf Jr have been subpoena’ed. A fiver sex they thought that’d never happen.

  2. It’s past time for all Democracy loving Americans to become “Antifa” or anti fascists before it’s to late. I recently read that in an article and can’t agree more.

  3. While Trump is “in awe of authoritarians whose dominance he so envied”, and by adding Victor Orban, “the Hungarian fuehrer”, we are still leaving out this guy of the past. Yes, Adolf Hitler. But Trump worships him also. One of Trump’s wives has admitted that Trump read Mein Kampf cover to cover.

  4. We shouldn’t forget his idol Mussolini either.
