Polish President rejects reports of his wife 'snubbing' Trump

Polish President rejects reports of his wife 'snubbing' Trump”

Ivanka Trump, a convert to Judaism, placed the wreath at the monument, known as the Monument for the Ghetto Heroes in Warsaw, early Thursday afternoon, shortly before her father laid a wreath and began a speech at the nearby Warsaw uprising memorial, which celebrates the acts of resistance fighters from the general population of Poland, who launched a bloody rebellion against the Germans in 1944.

It's worth noting freedom of the press has recently been under attack in Poland, so Trump's condemnation of the US media doesn't set a great example.

The White House wanted to use Trump's Warsaw speech-with its echoes of historic addresses overseas by Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy-to burnish his credentials as a global statesman and deflect suggestions he is making the United States a virtual pariah.

What did Trump do to his first presidential paycheck?

A video, showing what many interpreted as a snub by Polish First Lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda, went viral on Thursday.

The focus of outrage was a passage detailing how the West will survive in the 21st century.

TRUMP: We must work together to confront forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the south or the east, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are. Do we not have enough on our plate? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it? Overall, what would you say the message is from President Trump that's come across to his European listeners? Instead, the world is a battlefield.

It was apparent to European allies that Trump has a "deep personal aversion to the idea" of the mutual defense clause, but was under pressure to deliver, said Dana Allin, an analyst at the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies, a defense think tank.

This siege on the West and its values, then, was practically inevitable.

Trump was asked by a reporter whether he had given up on Xi. Making America #1 Again. And I see nothing wrong with that statement.

But what does Trump mean when he speaks of "the West" and its civilization?

Coats and other intelligence leaders reiterated that sentiment on May 11 when they told the Senate Intelligence Committee that they were convinced Russian Federation sought to meddle in the 2016 elections. "This danger is invisible to some but familiar to the Poles: The steady creepy of government bureaucracy that drains the vitality and wealth of the people". It's a unusual axis of evil. While it is true that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries are spending more on their defense, that boost began before he took office, in response to perceived threats from Russian Federation and the rise of the Islamic State. We need a capable president, not a crusader in chief. THE blockbuster of 2017: "American Greatness: How Conservatism Inc". We write symphonies. We pursue innovation.

Trump described Poland as a long-time US ally that is "an example for others who seek freedom and who wish to summon the courage and the will to defend our civilization".

It has been said that Trump has "no doctrine", or that his doctrine is putting "America first".

So, in spite of the lack of confidence in Trump in Poland, perhaps the bussed-in crowds weren't even necessary. Our values will prevail. He hammered this home at the end of his speech, after speaking at length about the fight against so-called Islamic State: "Our people will thrive and our civilisation will triumph".
