Insight Online News

Washington, Mar 11 : Former US President Donald Trump said he would not provide financial assistance to Ukraine if elected this fall, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said.

On Friday, Trump met with Orban at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida to discuss a wide range of issues of common interest for Hungary and the United States.

“If the Americans do not give weapons and money and the Europeans follow them, then the war will end. If the Americans do not give money, then the Europeans are not able to finance this war themselves, and then it will end. Trump is not president now, but his party interferes when the Democrats want to send money to the war. Trump said that if he returns, he will not do this; he will not allocate a penny. And then this war will end,” Orban said in an interview with Hungarian broadcaster M1.

Trump and Orban are longtime allies who share conservative political views and have publicly expressed mutual respect and support. Orban has thrown support behind Trump, both in the US presidential race and the legal challenges he is facing.
