U.S. President Donald Trump urges Russian Federation to stop destabilizing activities in Ukraine.
"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.
There was also the incident of Trump shaking hands with French president Emmanuel Macron which took on an unexpected element of uncomfortable intensity.
The question now is whether "we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost", he said.
Following scepticism previously voiced by Trump about the military alliance, Poles were eager to hear him clearly commit in Warsaw to NATO's Article Five, which states that an attack on one member of the military alliance is viewed as an attack on all. The right-wing populist government of Poland has undertaken many actions that have been roundly condemned throughout the world.
With the same temperament, the American president took advantage of his brief 16-hour visit to whip North Korea and even put up a threat: "I call on all nations to confront this global threat and publicly demonstrate to North Korea that there are consequences for their very, very bad behavior", he said, echoing the proposal announced yesterday by the U.S. government to institute new sanctions from the UN against Pyongyang.
Murray will be fit to play, insists Lendl
The pressure Andy Murray feels at Wimbledon actually helps him concentrate better, the defending champion has said. It had been expected that he would play on Friday but he has confirmed that he is going to have to miss the match.
Trump also congratulated Poland for receiving its first shipment of liquefied natural gas from the U.S.
During the speech at Krasinski Square-which memorializes the Warsaw uprising against Nazi occupation-Trump will point to Poland as an example of resolve in the defense of Western traditions.
In what was likely veiled criticism of the European Union, Trump condemned "the steady creep of government bureaucracy" and cited the importance of national sovereignty.
"Trump's decisions to pull out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Paris climate accord have dealt a blow to the near-global consensus", said Dmitri Trenin, director for the Carnegie Moscow Center.
Wow. I listened to a lot of Barack Obama's speeches, with all the empty platitudes about how we all can get along, even as the planet caught fire and burned while he sat back and dithered. Some foundations and an anonymous donor added money to Trump's contribution as well, increasing the total donation to over $260,000.
