Trump again demands more North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending, praises Poland

08 Juillet 2017

"But if we do not have strong families and strong values, then we will be weak and we will not survive", he said. President Donald Trump did some of that, too.

On the matter of Russia's interference in the 2016 US election, Trump suggested he was not yet convinced Moscow was exclusively responsible.

Their first stop, however, is in Poland where the First Lady seemed to have a busier schedule than President Trump.

Trump arrived in Warsaw Wednesday night for a 16-hour visit in the runup to the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. "It could be read as a signal that the US feels closer to Poland than to its European Union partners". She arrived in Warsaw wearing a sleeveless blue and pink Delpozo dress, greeting Poland's president, Andrzej Duda and his wife, Agata Kornhauser-Duda, who at 45 is just two years Trump's junior.

The U.S. president arrived on Wednesday in Warsaw where the White House said he would showcase his commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in a speech and in meetings with a group of nations closest to Russian Federation on his way to the G20 summit in Germany on Friday and Saturday.

With Trump's sights already set on getting re-elected in 2020, the visit to Poland could also be seen as a power play for battleground states like Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, home to hundreds of thousands of Polish-American voters.

While many USA presidents have pointed to a free and independent press as a pillar of democracy, Trump repeated his longstanding critique of CNN and singled out NBC News, complaining it was "equally as bad despite the fact that I made them a fortune with "The Apprentice" but they forgot that".

At a joint news conference with his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda, Trump said that North Korean leaders were "behaving in a very, very unsafe matter and something will have to be done about it".

In a corresponding move, the team optioned Dominic Leone to Triple-A Buffalo in order to make room on the 25-man roster. Stroman was lifted from his previous start Monday at Yankee Stadium because of a blister on his pitching hand.

At the same time, Trump will have to balance his visit to Europe with escalating tensions with North Korea, after the US concluded Tuesday that North Korea had test-launched its first intercontinental ballistic missile. They said discussions were continuing Thursday to try to find wording that all 15 council members would approve. "I have pretty severe things that we're thinking about", the president said.

Most U.S. presidents use their foreign trips to promote the virtues of American democracy. He warned North Korea that "something will have to be done" to address "very bad behaviour".

Poland hopes to woo Donald Trump the businessman with new investment opportunities in eastern Europe when the US president pays a whistle-stop trip to Warsaw on Thursday en route for a G20 summit in neighboring Germany.

But first Trump will stop in Poland, where leaders are looking for reassurance that the presence of USA and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation troops there will continue as long as the region's security is threatened by a resurgent Russian Federation.

The NATO alliance has demanded that North Korea immediately halt its ballistic missile and nuclear weapons programs, two days after the country test-launched its first intercontinental ballistic missile.

Mr Duda, meanwhile, railed against some of Poland's news networks, accusing one of refusing to cover his recent trip to Croatia.

Speaking from behind bulletproof glass in Krasinski Square - by a monument to the 1944 Uprising against the Nazis in the city - he questioned whether Europe had the heart for the fight.
