In a speech delivered in Warsaw, Poland, President Donald Trump told the crowd that “America loves Poland and America loves the Polish people,” and Poles were quick to prove that the feeling was mutual.
…beginning with the warm welcome the president and the first lady received upon their arrival Thursday in the eastern European country.
Calling the host country “a land of great heroes,” Trump said in his speech “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.”
This prompted the crowd to start chanting, “Donald Trump! Donald Trump!”
Speaking in a country that has successfully avoided terrorist attacks at the hands of Islamic extremists by not accepting refugees from the Middle East, Trump referenced the Warsaw Uprising during World War Two to say Western Civilization will prevail.
“Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken,” he said. “Our values will prevail, our people will thrive, and our civilization will triumph.” (Full speech can be viewed below.)
The Poles were clearly in love.
