As I write this, President Donald Trump is landing at the Chopin International Airport in Warsaw, Poland. After meetings with the heads of the government tomorrow morning, he will deliver an address at Krasiński Square
in the capital, the location of the Polish Supreme Court, Field Cathedral of the Polish Army and the Warsaw Uprising Monument.
The last feature will serve as the backdrop for the President’s speech, as he is expected to highlight Polish heroism and reinforce the bond of friendship and military cooperation through NATO between the United States and Poland.
The Western media has of course attempted to cast shade on President Trump’s choice of Poland for his visit, suggesting that Poland’s “right wing” government will bus in adoring crowds. Many people will surely come on buses, and in cars, and through public transportation, and on foot to see the 45th President of the United States. Not because they were forced to, but because they are happy to see him in Poland.
