WASHINGTON — President Trump welcomed Poland’s nationalist president to the White House on Wednesday with an elaborate show of support, promising more American troops, defending Warsaw’s record on democracy and staging a rare and showy F-35 jet flyover to mark their friendship.
In his latest embrace of Europe’s nationalist surge, Mr. Trump stood side by side with President Andrzej Duda and their wives on the South Lawn of the White House staring into the sky and waving as the Marine warplane roared overhead, buzzed around the Washington Monument and then headed back for a second pass.
The AP further reported:
At a time of ongoing worries about Russian military activity, Duda said he wanted Russia to be a friend of Poland even as he recounted his country’s long history of conflict with Moscow.
“We would like Russia to be our friend, but unfortunately, Russia again is showing its very unkind, unpleasant imperial face,” Duda said, noting its attacks on Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2014. He spoke through a translator during a news conference with Trump in the White House Rose Garden, where they discussed details of the military deal.
“I hope that Poland is going to have a great relationship with Russia. I think it’s possible. I really do,” Trump said. “I think because of what you’ve done, and the strength, and maybe we help also, because of what we’re doing and doing for Poland.
“But I hope Poland is going to have a great relationship with Russia. I hope we’re going to have a great relationship with Russia, and by the way, China and many other countries,” he said.
It was a pleasure to host my friends President Andrzej Duda and Mrs. Agata Kornhauser-Duda of Poland at the @WhiteHouse today. U.S.-Poland ties are at an all-time high. Thank you for being such an exemplary Ally! pic.twitter.com/tvhHIpsrFo
