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

"The [Polish] president offered us much more than $2 billion, so we're looking at it".

Mexico may not pay for a border wall, but Poland has offered to pay to build a permanent military base for the U.S. In a joint press conference following a meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda, President Donald Trump said Poland had offered over $2 billion towards the costs.

Poland has long sought to have the USA bolster its presence in Eastern Europe as a counter to Russian Federation, and Polish President Andrzej Duda said at the White House that the base could be called "Fort Trump" if that would speed the process.

Without giving a timetable, Trump said the us and Poland planned to launch a "high-level diplomatic exchange" on energy security. "And we're looking at that more and more from the standpoint of defending really wealthy countries and not being. paid. And we're very close to being finished with that job", he said.

Though the Polish president's naming proposal appeared to be in jest, Trump said Poland was willing to make a "very major" contribution if the United States were to establish a permanent military presence in the nation.

"The results of these efforts will contribute to the defense not only of Central and Eastern Europe, but also of the whole Alliance".

Fort Trump is the top trending item on Twitter this morning.

According to Reuters, Poland has repeatedly requested a permanent USA military presence on their soil as a defense against Russian Federation. "There's a host of details we've got to study alongside the Poles", Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon.
