Trump 'seriously' considering boosting US military in Poland

Trump says U.S. considering permanent military presence in Poland

Donald Trump is ‘very seriously’ considering more troops in Poland

President Trump yesterday said he was considering a request from Poland for a permanent United States military base in the country to deter Russian aggression.

Trump said the two leaders agreed to bolster defense, energy and commercial ties, adding that the alliance between the two countries had "never been stronger".

According to Reuters, Poland has repeatedly requested a permanent us military presence on their soil as a defense against Russian Federation.

Mr Duda made a direct appeal in their joint press conference saying that a permanent base would be named "Fort Trump" in honour of the USA leader.

USA forces are already deployed to Poland on a rotational basis, part of an effort by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to step up defenses on its eastern flank after Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Trump wants $275b in China tariffs despite talks
Citing anonymous sources, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal reported that the tariffs would be set at 10 percent. The new round would be in addition to $50 billion in Chinese goods that already face a 25 percent duty.

Without giving a timetable, Trump said the USA and Poland planned to launch a "high-level diplomatic exchange" on energy security. A decision from the USA could come early next year.

"I was smiling when I was talking to Mr President".

And the White House reinforced that judgment, saying a partnership between the USA and Poland "is critical in light of growing security challenges characterized by aggressive Russian behavior".

In May 2018, the Polish government offered to spend up to $2 billion to establish a permanent USA military presence in Poland. Duda credited Trump for making Warsaw the first stop on the US president's inaugural European trip previous year and said Trump's outdoor address in Poland was a "very important moment" for the relationship between the two countries.

Poland is trying to wean itself from Russian natural gas, while at the same time building up a supply chain from the United States and Norway to replace it. Duda cited Russia's history of shutting off gas supplies to countries during times of conflict as to why that's become a national security issue for Poland, which gets about two-thirds of its natural gas from the Kremlin-controlled Gazprom PJSC.

In his remarks, Duda said, "I would very much like to ask to set up a permanent American base in Poland, which we would call 'Fort Trump.' I firmly believe this is possible".

"I think its a very aggressive situation". "We just think it's very unfortunate for the people of Germany that Germany is paying billions and billions of dollars a year for their energy to Russian Federation", he said.

"They respect force. They respect strength as anyone does".

Poland, which is a member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation since 1999, has been taking a very active part in the recent military activities of the alliance, described as an attempt to counter "hostile" Russian moves. Tusk said in a rebuke to Trump from the European Union earlier this year.
