Donald Trump’s Welcome in Poland is Great! (But Will He Change His Stance on Russia?)

Written by Joe Scudder

Donald Trump’s welcome consisted of the cheers of the Polish people, and he in turn said things that they liked.

News of Donald Trump’s welcome when he arrived in Poland must encourage and please his U.S. supporters. Their chants were the opposite of what we get from our own media that screams about a Russian conspiracy theory in which the President is illegitimate because he colluded with Vladimir Putin. Many in Poland love the President as well as our country.

Grabien News reports, “Polish Crowd Chants ‘Donald Trump!’’USA! USA!’

The Polish crowd attending President Trump’s speech in Warsaw repeatedly interrupted his remarks with chants of “Donald Trump!” and “USA! USA!”

At a wreath-laying ceremony in Krasinski Square, the excited crowd broke out into an American-style, “USA! USA! USA!” chant. 

Later, during Trump’s prepared remarks, the crowd repeatedly interrupted the speech with a “Donald Trump! Donald Trump!” chant.

“The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken and who have never ever forgotten who they are,” Trump said in Warsaw […]

That’s great news, but Trump reportedly said some surprising things. The Poles understandably hate Russia and Donald Trump’s welcome of his Polish fans involved a message that they would appreciate.

Thus, the Daily Mail headline, “Trump finally turns on Russia as he warns Putin to STOP his aggression in Syria and Ukraine as he issues full-throated attack on radical Islamic terrorism AND government bureaucracy to delight of thousands of Poles who chant his name.

President Donald Trump browbeat Russia on Thursday for its ‘destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere and its support for hostile regimes including Syria and Iran’ and urged Vladimir Putin’s government to join the US and its allies in the fight against violent extremism.

Trump had refused earlier in the day to pin election hacking last year in the US on the Kremlin, saying he thinks it was Putin’s government, but it ‘could have been other people in other countries.’

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out over Trump’s two terms.
