Trump hosts joint news conference with Poland president

Andrzej Duda and Donald Trump

This is Duda's first official visit to the White House since Trump took office.

US President Donald Trump greets Poland's President Andrzej Duda at the start of a joint news conference in the East Room of the White House in Washington, September 18, 2018.

Washington is a key military ally for Warsaw which, fearful of Russian Federation, has been pressing for a permanent U.S. troop presence in Poland.

Trump, who looked annoyed at times by Duda's long answers, jumped in at one point to note that Poland has promised to pay "billions of dollars for a base".

The president of Poland appealed to President Donald Trump's well known affection for slapping his name on buildings as he pitched a permanent US military base in his country that he said would be named 'Fort Trump'.

Poland's President Andrzej Duda asks the USA to station more troops in his country and wants to increase the volume of liquefied gas contracts with the United States to cut its dependence on gas imports from Russian Federation.

However the medicine was linked with an increased risk of serious bleeding, in line with previous findings. Other large aspirin studies have suggested that aspirin may prevent cancer over the longer term.

"The U.S. government, the Defense Department and Congress in particular, are very far away from concluding that such a move is in the best interest of the United States or fiscally responsible considering existing U.S. military installations in Europe", said Heather Conley, who served as a deputy assistant secretary of state for George W. Bush and is now a senior vice president at the Center for Strategic & International Studies.

I said that I would very much like for us to set up a permanent American base in Poland which we would call Fort Trump. "Even with the branding of "Fort Trump" and what seems to be a very generous offer of $2 billion dollars to support such a permanent presence, this would be a very small down initial payment and would not substitute from the modern and advanced USA facilities in Germany and elsewhere in Europe".

Duda noted the purchases of American weapons by Poland and said he wants to buy more.

Trump says they agreed to bolster defense, energy and commercial ties.

Trump says he's "very seriously" considering a greater USA troop presence in Poland as he meets with that country's president at the White House. In March, the United States and Poland said technical problems would delay completion of the Polish section of a US missile defense shield by two years to 2020. "If they're willing to do that (pay), it's something we will certainly talk about". "I was smiling when I was talking to Mr President".
