Fort Trump? Polish leader dangles offer to US president

Fort Trump? Polish leader dangles offer to US president

Duda, during his first trip to the White House since Trump took office, pledged to cover $2 billion of the costs of a new USA military base in Poland and name it after Trump, citing a need for increased defense amid "very strong militarization" and "aggressive behaviors" by Russian Federation in recent years.

The security of Poland is "very important", US President Donald Trump said during a brief meeting with reporters before face-to-face talks with Polish head of state Andrzej Duda. "I am convinced that there is no more an effective method of preventing a war than a decisive stance demonstrating that we are ready at any moment to repel possible attack".

When you watch the clip, take notice of how Trump seemed to perk up at how his name was invoked.

This gave President Donald Trump a smile.

Poland wants to increase the volume of liquefied gas contracts with the USA as a way to cut its dependence on gas imports from Russian Federation.

Trump, who has repeatedly threatened to punish countries if they don't spend enough on defense, said he would only agree if Poland is willing to pay the United States.

Trump's remarks come as China and the United States plunged deeper into a trade war after Beijing added $60 billion of USA products to its import tariff list in retaliation for Trump's planned levies on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.

Showdown hearing not yet set: Dems, GOP arguing on witnesses
Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) that the committee should delay its vote pending an investigation, Leahy said, "That would make sense". He said in a statement Monday that he wanted to "refute this false allegation, from 36 years ago, and defend my integrity".

Duda credited Trump for making Warsaw the first stop on the USA president's inaugural European trip a year ago and said Trump's outdoor address in Poland was a "very important moment" for the relationship between the two countries.

Russian Federation isn't the only one opposed to the idea. Another concern is setting up a permanent base in Poland would cause a rift among North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members and chip away at alliance unity. Last October, the U.S. sent a new mechanized brigade there.

Duda's conservative Law and Justice Party won a surprise election victory in 2015 on a platform of skepticism about the European Union.

Trump also fielded a question about sexual assault accusations leveled against his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, again praising Kavanaugh and questioning why the allegation wasn't brought up earlier.

Warsaw was the first stop on Trump's first European tour past year.

On Monday, the USA administration said it will begin to levy new tariffs of 10 percent on about $200 billion of Chinese products on September 24, with the tariffs to go up to 25 percent by the end of 2018. "And we have the greatest strength in the world, especially now". "We've been ripped off by everybody".
