Trump studying possibility of a permanent USA base in Poland

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks next to first lady Melania Trump during a meeting with Poland's President Andrzej Duda in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington U.S

President Trump's failed attempt to shake the hand of Polish first lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda went viral in 2017 when she reached out to greet Melania Trump instead.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday he was "very seriously" considering a greater U.S. troop presence in Poland as he conferred with a top North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partner at the White House.

The US now supplies most of the troops, about 900, for a rotating North Atlantic Treaty Organisation battalion in Poland as part of the alliance response to Russian intervention in Ukraine and Moscow's muscle-flexing along its western borders involving large-scale military exercises.

Trump added the United States was interested in exploring the possibility of constructing the base.

France and Germany have at times responded in kind to Trump's harsh criticism of alliance members for failing to spend more on defense, but Polish officials, for the most part, have been consistent in their praise of Trump in an effort to get more US support. "And we're looking at that more and more from the standpoint of defending really wealthy countries and not being. paid".

In May 2018, the Polish government offered to spend up to $2 billion to establish a permanent USA military presence in Poland.

"I am convinced there is no more effective method of preventing a war than a decisive stance illustrating that we are ready at any moment to repel possible attack", Duda said.

Duda said Russian military expansion, starting with a takeover of rebel areas of neighbouring Georgia and more recently the annexation of Ukraine's Black Sea Crimea region was part of "constant violation of global law". In March, the United States and Poland said technical problems would delay completion of the Polish section of a US missile defense shield by two years to 2020.

Trump said he and Duda agreed to bolster the United States and Poland's defense cooperation in military relations, intelligence, missile defense and training, and praised the country for meeting North Atlantic Treaty Organization goals on defense spending. "If they're willing to do that (pay), it's something we will certainly talk about".

Duda, during his first trip to the White House since Trump took office, pledged to cover $2 billion of the costs of a new US military base in Poland and name it after Trump, citing a need for increased defense amid "very strong militarization" and "aggressive behaviors" by Russian Federation in recent years. "We have been ripped off by China, we have been ripped off by, excuse me, Mr. President, the European Union, of which you're a part of", Trump said. I think that Russian has acted aggressively.
