- ‘Your oppressors tried to break you, but Poland could not be broken,’
Trump delivered his address in Krasinski Square, at the foot of a statue commemorating the 1944 Polish uprising against German occupiers. He and first lady Melania Trump laid a wreath at its base.
He urged them to uphold ‘a future in which good conquers evil.’
They repeatedly chanted ‘USA, USA’ and ‘Donald Trump! Donald Trump!’
Trump had earlier met the Polish president and warned that the future of the West is in doubt.
In a speech to the public he praised Poland’s ‘will to survive’ because they ‘have never, ever forgotten who they are.’
‘The Polish experience reminds us – the defense of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail,’ Trump said.
‘Your oppressors tried to break you, but Poland could not be broken,’ he said.
And Trump projected his fight against Middle Eastern terrorism onto the template of Poland’s historic struggles, saying, ‘We are fighting hard against radical Islamic terrorism, and we will prevail.’
‘America and Europe have suffered one terror attack after another. We are going to get it to stop,’ he said. ‘While we will always welcome new citizens who share our values and love our people, our borders will always be closed to terrorism and extremism of any kind.’
The president urged European nations to commit more of their money to NATO, as he said the organization’s ‘Article 5’ commitment to mutual defense is an ironclad guarantee.
‘Words are easy but actions are what matters,’ he said. ‘Europe must do more. Europe must demonstrate that it believes in its future by investing its money to secure that future.’
At a press conference following his private talks with Andrzej Duda, Trump said North Korea would face ‘consequences’ for its intercontinental ballistic missile test.
He also admitted that Russia ‘could have’ interfered with the 2016 election and vowed to work with Poland on addressing threats from the country
