"So if you were in charge of NATO, if you were, say, Joe Biden, what would your next move be in the war in Ukraine?" former Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked Orbán. "What would you do?"

The authoritarian leader answered, "Peace. Immediately, call back Trump."

"That's the only way out," Orbán continued. "Call back Trump because, you know, you can criticize him for many reasons. I understand all the discussion. But, you know, the best foreign policy of the recent several decades belong to him."

The PM mentioned how the ex-prez didn't initiate any new war while in office and how "nicely" he treated leadership in North Korea, Russia, and even China.

"He's criticized that he's not, you know, he's not educated enough to understand the world. But this is not the case. Facts count. And his foreign policy was the best one for the world in the last several decades."

Since Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, Orbán’s government has maintained its close ties with Moscow and has gone as far as to threaten to block EU sanctions on Russia.

The Hungarian PM is known as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s closest ally in the EU. He has refused to allow the transfer of Western weapons across Hungary’s shared border with Ukraine and called for an immediate cease-fire and peace talks in the conflict.

During the interview, Orbán also criticized the multiple federal indictments of Trump — which included an alleged mishandling of classified documents and an attempt to overturn the 2020 election — as a "misuse" of state power, something he claimed was "unthinkable" in Hungary.

"To use the justice system against the political opponents ... That was done by the Communists," he told Carlson. "It’s a very Communist methodology to do that."

Carlson posted the full 30-minute interview on X, formally known as Twitter.
