PM Orbán: US presidential election proves people can release themselves from captivity of ideological trends

PM Orbán stated that the world has always benefited whenever it has managed to free itself from the captivity of ideological trends

Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has highlighted how the US presidential election proves that the people are able to free themselves from the captivity of ideological trends.

During his one-day official visit to London to meet with British PM Theresa May, PM Orbán stated that the world has always benefited whenever it has managed to release itself from the constraints of ideology.

“In my view, this is what has happened just now in the United States. This also gives the rest of the Western world the chance to free itself from the captivity of ideologies, of political correctness, and of modes of thought and expression which are remote from reality: the chance to come back down to earth [and] see the world as it really is," the prime minister said.

Upon hearing the news of Donald Trump's win, PM Orbán became one of the first leaders to congratulate the president-elect after posting a message online, “what a great news. Democracy is still alive," PM Orbán wrote.
