Trump mulls increasing U.S. troop levels in Poland

F-35 fighters to conduct flyover of White House during Polish president's visit

F-35 fighters to conduct flyover of White House during Polish president's visit

Trump will mark the signing and Duda's visit with a rare military display: a flyover of two F-35 fighter jets above the White House that comes as Poland is taking steps to purchase new F-35s from the United States.

"Poland will build a phenomenal facility in a very good location".

During meetings throughout the day, Trump had announced that the USA would deploy 1,000 soldiers to Poland as well as a squadron of MQ-9 Reaper drones.

Polish officials said this week that the announcement is related to increasing levels of permanent troops stationed in Poland.

"They are talking about 2,000 troops, but we'd be taking them out of Germany or moving them from another location".

The military base Poland has pledged to build for the US could still be named "Fort Trump," but that is up to the Poles to decide, President Donald Trump said Wednesday.

Trump also said Poland is buying more than 30 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jets from the U.S. In recognition of that purchase, a single F-35 flew over the White House on a sunny afternoon. While the press conference focused on areas of agreement, Trump said he differed with Poland's efforts to force the country's Supreme Court justices to retire early.

Mom Still Unsure of What Creature Was in Her Driveway
While most commented about the resemblance of the creature to Dobby, a few raised suspicions about the video being a hoax. While some are convinced the creature has been photoshopped in, others are genuinely freaked out by the discovery.

In the early 2000s, there were intense talks on deployment of a USA anti-missile defense system in Poland, ostensibly to guard against Iranian attacks on Europe but seen by Russian Federation as a direct threat.

The decision to expand America's military presence in Poland comes after months of lobbying by Polish leaders who had hoped for a US base in their country.

"I hope that Poland is going to have a great relationship with Russian Federation".

The other issue that dominated talks between the two leaders was that of energy supply. Trump claims the deal is worth about $8 billion.

Also on Tuesday, senior officials touted a "significant announcement" around the Polish president's visit related to the future security partnership and defense relationship between the US and Poland, but officials declined to go into detail.

Asked about "Fort Trump" on Tuesday before a meeting with his Polish counterpart, Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan replied, "Why don't we let President Trump make any announcement like that".

Trump once again criticized Germany for its Nord Stream 2 pipeline deal with Russian Federation, threatening the specter of sanctions at an unspecified time in the future. But nothing is finalized, Mr. Trump said. "When bad things happen, it seems Poland is the first one that is in there and it is unfortunate".
