Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban said on Friday that he is rooting for the re-election of US President  Donald Trump because what he represents “is good for Central Europe.”

Orban said he was in his kitchen when Trump called him on Thursday evening and they had a long talk about the pandemic situation in America, the US electoral outlook and bilateral issues.

“What the president represents is good for Central Europe, which is why we are rooting – at least me, personally – for him to win the election,” he said {snip}

In July 2016, Orban became the first European national leader to publicly endorse Trump’s presidential candidacy.
