President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump received a warm welcome as they arrived in Warsaw, Poland, on Wednesday night ahead of Friday’s G20 summit in Germany.
A retinue of Polish officials, including Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs Witold Waszczykowski and Minister of State Krzysktof Szczerski, greeted the Trumps as they disembarked from Air Force One at Chopin Airport.
As usual, Melania looked stunning in a belted green coat accented by a colorful scarf (see video). Jared Kushner and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin accompanied the president on the trip, as did Ivanka Trump, who looked beautiful in a wine-colored pantsuit.
While France, Britain and Germany disagree with President Trump’s policies on refugees and open borders, Poland is one of the few European nations that refuses to take in more refugees from known hotbeds of Muslim terrorism.
Most Polish citizens enthusiastically embrace President Trump’s message of nationalism and the need to enforce their sovereign borders. Many Poles are disgusted at Angela Merkel‘s open-borders refugee policy that has destroyed Europe.
“There is no love for Germany in Poland,” Aleksander Kowalczyk, an accountant, told the Daily Mail. “I am hoping Trump will bring more love for Poland than Germany has ever shown us. I’m hoping he understands us.”
Trump is extremely popular among Poles, as evidenced by the raucous applause and cheers he received during his speech:

Polish prime minister Beata Szydlo recently declared that Poland will not be “blackmailed” into accepting thousands of refugees under the EU quota system, especially after the unending wave of Islamist terrorist attacks that have rocked Europe.
In a defiant speech, Szydlo urged lawmakers to protect Poland from the scourges of Islamist terrorism and cultural suicide: “Rise from your knees and from your lethargy, or you will be crying over your children every day!”

While mainstream media routinely portray all Europeans as hating President Trump, in fact, many Europeans respect and admire the brash billionaire for his tough stance. (My brother’s Latvian wife likes Trump, and said most people in Latvia and Eastern Europe also admire him but the fake news media won’t report that.)
Here’s an array of photos and video from social media chronicling the warm welcome the Trumps received in Poland. The president stayed in Warsaw until 2:30 p.m. local time, and then flew to Germany for the G20 summit.
