polandinenglish.info

Donald J. Trump has met with the Polish president Andrzej Duda at White House. Duda has suggested to establish a permanent US military base in Poland as a bulwark against Russia. Donald Trump has said he is considering a Polish request to establish a permanent US military base in Poland, The Guardian reported.

Trump spoke on the matter at a joint press conference on Tuesday with his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda, who had come to White House to press his government’s arguments for a base, which he jokily suggested could be called “Fort Trump”.

Trump said he agreed with Duda’s arguments that Russian actions, especially the seizure of parts of Georgia and Ukraine, warranted a tough response.

“I think it’s a very aggressive situation. I think that Russia has acted aggressively. They respect force. They respect strength, as anyone does. And we have the greatest strength in the world, especially now,” Trump mentioned.

“We believe that the presence of the United States is a guarantor of security in our part of Europe,” Duda said. “I was smiling when I was talking to Mr President. I said that I would very much like for us to set up a permanent American base in Poland, which we would call Fort Trump. I firmly believe that this is possible. I am convinced that such a decision lies both in the Polish interest and in the interest of the United States.”

 

Trump declared himself open to the idea, stressing that Poland would pay for the facility.
