Trump arrives in Poland”

A prominent Polish newspaper has urged U.S. President Donald Trump to "support the European Union instead of weakening it" in an editorial published to coincide with Trump's arrival in Poland.

President Donald Trump has called on his foreign allies to take action against North Korea's missile threat. I don't think he choked.

Earlier in the session, Trump spent time insulting the media, singling out CNN and saying "they have been fake news for a long time", and adding that "NBC is equally as bad". U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson planned to join Trump in Germany.

"It is important that President Trump feel good about his visit to Poland", Stanislaw Pieta, a member of parliament for the Party of Law and Justice told the AFP. Poland's Defense Minister Antoni Macierewicz told reporters on Thursday that the United States had agreed to sell Patriot missiles to Poland.

Trump, who will be accompanied by his wife Melania, is to meet Poland's President Andrzej Duda and leaders of 11 other nations who will be holding a summit of the so-called Three Seas Initiative. A recent Pew poll found that just 23 percent of Polish citizens were confident in Trump's leadership, whereas 58 percent of Polish citizens had previously expressed confidence in former President Barack Obama's leadership.

"If President Trump will use the occasion to divide the Europeans and say that some Europeans, like the Poles, are better than the other Europeans, like the French and the Germans that he doesn't get along very well with, that would not help anyone", said Zaborowski.

He commemorated the horrors of World War II in Poland during his speech in the Warsaw Uprising Monument on Krasinski Square, but seemed to embrace the Polish right wing narrative according to which the Poles were merely victims of the Nazis and did not play a proactive role in the slaughter of Jews.

Haley said that the U.S. "will work with China. but we will not repeat the inadequate approaches of the past that have brought us to this dark day". "The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken, and who have never forgotten who they are".

The reaction to the Trump tweets was immediate in Europe.

Mr Trump praised his counterpart for exceeding Poland's required contribution to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

The head of the american diplomacy Rex Tillerson has cancelled at the last moment his visit to Warsaw, but he will also be well Donald Trump at the G20 summit. In total, Trump will spend around five working hours in Warsaw.

Following his visit to Poland, Mr Trump will attend the G20 summit in Germany, where he will hold face-to-face talks with Chancellor Angela Merkel and hold his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Several of Trump's closest aides are under investigation for possible ties with Moscow, which U.S. intelligence agencies say tried to tilt the election in the Republican candidate's favour.

In the 2013, before becoming president, Obama's speech at the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin drew an estimated crowd of 200,000.
