As the war in Ukraine rages on -- needlessly in the view of many -- former President Donald Trump has been mocked for claiming that if he were president, he could end the conflict in 24 hours or less.
However, according to Breitbart, it looks as though Trump was just vindicated in a major way, by someone in the know.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán recently told Tucker Carlson that he believes only Trump can "save the Western world" from a nightmare, World War III scenario.
Orbán made the claim in a recent interview with Carlson in Budapest.
"Trump is the man who can save the Western world and probably all human beings on the globe," the prime minister said.
He added, "Call back Trump. That’s the only way out. Call back Trump."

Orbán continued, saying that the “best foreign policy of the recent several decades belonged to him,” noting that Trump did not start any new wars, sought peace deals in the Middle East, and that he engaged with Chinese, North Koreans, and the Russians with respect.
The Hungarian leader went on to praise the former president for his foreign policy skills, saying that it means much more in real-world applications than an education in geopolitics.
"He’s [Trump] criticized because he’s not educated enough to understand the world politics. This is not the case," Orbán said. "Facts count and his foreign policy was the best form for the world in the last several decades I have seen."
Orbán, who grew up in Soviet-occupied Hungary and was an anti-communist campaigner in 1989, said that fundamentally Western leaders misunderstand the mindset of the Russian people and that it is a fantasy to think that the Russian people will turn on Vladimir Putin out of a desire for Western-style freedoms.
Orbán further explained how different the thinking is in Russia on the subject of freedom, and where it stands on the priority list for Russians.
"To understand the Russians is a difficult thing, especially if you have an ocean between you and Russia. When we speak about politics as Westerners, the focus point is freedom, how to provide more and more freedom to the people. When you speak on politics in Russia, this is not the number one issue, the number one issue is how to keep together the country because it is very big.
Hopefully, the Russian invasion of Ukraine is over and done with by the time 2024 rolls around, but if it's not, and Trump is elected, the world will watch and wait for him to follow through on his promise.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
