If there’s one thing Poland’s got, it’s President Trump’s back.
Poland has a lot offer, but it’s quickly becoming a country known for more than beautiful mountainsides, delicious sausage and smooth Vodka – it’s becoming Europe’s beacon of freedom.
Polish president Andrzej Duda expressed his approval for Trump’s war with the media and fired off an unapologetic tweet one day after the U.S. president’s “Fake News Awards” were announced.
President Trump @realDonaldTrump just stressed again the power of fake news. Thank you. We must continue to fight that phenomenon. Poland experiences fake news power first hand. Many European and even US officials form their opinions of PL based on relentless flow of fake news.

It’s no wonder that Duda weighed in, as he is intimately familiar with the power of “fake news.”
Before corrections could be made, the story took off like wildfire until the full video finally made the rounds:

It was only a matter a time until the story was walked back, and Polish President Duda wasted no time calling out the media for its deceitful “scoop.”
Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump @POTUS after a great visit. Let's FIGHT FAKE NEWS.

Trump and First Lady Melania were greeted with a hero’s welcome when they visited Poland last summer. The Polish people have been lockstep with Trump’s no-nonsense immigration stance, and have come out in force to resist European pressure to admit mass amounts of Middle Eastern immigrants.

Duda has expressed his gratitude for the current American leadership ever since, and 10 days ago, he tweeted gratitude for the partnership between the two countries.
100 years ago @POTUS declaration paved the way for Poland to regain its independence. A century later, Polish-American strategic partnership flourishes to the benefit of our two nations and the whole region of Central Europe. #14 points @realDonaldTrump

It looks like the Polish leader understands the nature of diplomacy and fully grasps the true menace of “fake news”; and unlike many politicians, he understands that one of the most egregious and harmful offenders is the mainstream U.S. media.
