Enthusiastic Poles interrupted U.S. President Donald Trump’s well-received speech several times on Thursday with chants of “Donald Trump! Donald Trump!”
In Europe for the Group of 20 economic summit of world leaders, Trump first stopped in Warsaw to strengthen the already friendly alliance between his country and Poland. “America is eager to expand our partnership with you,” Trump said.
He addressed more than 15,000 Poles in attendance at historic Krasinski Square in front of a monument commemorating the 1944 Warsaw Uprising during Nazi occupation in World War II.
“Poland is the geographic heart of Europe. But more importantly, in the Polish people, we see the soul of Europe,” the president said in the highly acclaimed speech. “Your nation is great because your spirit is great and your spirit is strong.”Poles came from throughout the country to see Trump. “We are here from our own convictions and belief,” Stanislaw Niesyn, who traveled 170 miles for the occasion, told the Associated Press.
Trump noted the historic ties between the two nations. “Polish heroes and American patriots fought side by side in our War of Independence and in many wars that followed,” he said. “Our soldiers still serve together today in Afghanistan and Iraq, combating the enemies of all civilization.”
“The signs of this friendship stand in our nation’s capital. Just steps from the White House, we’ve raised statues of men with names like Pulaski and Kosciuszko,” Trump pointed out. “The same is true in Warsaw, where street signs carry the name of George Washington and a monument stands to one of the world’s greatest heroes, Ronald Reagan.”At that point, thousands in attendance began shouting “Donald Trump! Donald Trump!”
