President Donald Trump: US to Send 1,000 Troops to Poland in New Deal

The United States of America will deploy 1,000 additional troops to Poland, President Donald Trump has said during a press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda.

President Trump said the force would be taken from America’s 52,000-strong contingent in Germany, and include drones and other military hardware.

He fell short, however, of committing to the permanent United States of America based in the country.

The base may be called Fort Trump, President Duda quipped during his visit to the White House on Wednesday.

President Trump said America was “very interested” in the idea, but was reluctant to commit to a permanent facility – something that would likely prompt response by Russia.

“I don’t talk about permanence or not permanence,” he told reporters, adding that the base “would certainly be a statement”.

The visit – Mr. Duda’s second in less than a year – celebrated the 20th anniversary of Poland’s membership in Nato, and the 30th anniversary of communism’s downfall in the country.

Speaking to reporters, Mr. Duda thanked Mr. Trump for his “extreme kindness towards Poland and perfect understanding of Polish matters”
