President Donald Trump in Warsaw
“America loves Poland, and America loves the Polish people. It is a profound honor to stand in this city, by the monument to the Warsaw Uprising, and to address the Polish nation that so many generations have dreamed of: a Poland that is safe, strong, and free”, said Donald Trump in his speech at Krasinskich Square in Warsaw, Poland.
The U.S. President articulated an American commitment to the defence of its European allies. He also evoked Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty, according to which, other members states are obliged to provide military aid to all countries which have been attacked. At the same time, he added that European states need to be more involved in their common military responsabilities, also in financial terms. “A strong Poland is a blessing to the nations of Europe, and they know that. A strong Poland is a blessing to the West and to the world”, he said.
