Hungary does not approve of the teachings from the United States and their desire to impose their point of view on other countries, former US President Donald Trump understood Budapest’s displeasure, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said.
“It’s not my job to criticize the president of the United States, it’s not a good business idea … I would rather say that American Democrats are much more ideologically driven than Republicans. Democrats are always trying to convince you, and sometimes force you, how to live. And we don’t like it.
We have our own culture, it determines how we live, don’t interfere, please don’t teach us, don’t tell us what’s good and what’s bad, we don’t like it. It’s none of your business, not Americans or what any other nation, this is the business of the Hungarians.
Donald Trump understands this, that’s what’s important,” Orban said, speaking at the economic forum in Qatar , the audience supported his statement with applause.

Earlier, with the support of the US Embassy, posters were placed on the streets of Budapest calling for the withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukraine .
Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó urged the United States to treat Hungary not as a colony, but as a sovereign country, and stated that “there is no such number of posters, press conferences and dollars poured into the opposition that would make the Hungarian government abandon its position of commitment the world.”
US Ambassador to Budapest David Pressman noted that this is an important moment for Hungary to determine the future path, and called on Budapest to strengthen relations with Western allies. Orban said earlier that Budapest is interested in maintaining ties with Russia for as long as possible, but no one can say if this will succeed.
During his visit to Sarajevo , Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto called it shocking and outrageous that the US State Department makes reports on the state of human rights in other countries, based on one-sided information, which in turn is funded by the US itself, and interferes in the internal affairs of other states.
