"We're talking about 2,000 troops" who would come from bases outside the USA, most likely Germany, Trump said.

US President Donald Trump and his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda are expected to make an announcement in relation to increasing US troop levels in Poland.

Last year, Duda said Poland was willing to spend up to $2 billion for a US base and suggested calling it "Fort Trump".

Duda said he hoped the USA military presence in Poland would be enduring and would increase gradually.

Trump also praised Poland's commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, singling it out for meeting spending aims, unlike Germany, whom he also singled out.

"We would like Russian Federation to be our friend, but unfortunately, Russian Federation again is showing its very unkind, unpleasant imperial face", Duda said, noting its attacks on Georgia in 2008 and Ukraine in 2014. In February, the US ambassador to NATO, Kay Bailey Hutchison, said American forces wouldn't be pulled out of Germany if the USA military expands in Poland.

The U.S.is also helping to construct a missile defense base in Poland, which aims to defend U.S. and European allies from a "rogue" missile threat, namely Iran.


Ever the one to be thrilled when foreign countries purchase "beautiful American weapons", Trump was also ebullient when he announced that Poland would be buying 32 F-35 fighter jets.

"Moments ago we witnessed that impressive flyover of this cutting edge, F-35 as it flew over the White House", the president said.

Polish Counsel General Maciej Golubiewski said told MSNBC this morning that the agreement "quantitatively and qualitatively" increases USA troop presence in the country.

Also Wednesday, Trump dismissed the suggestion that his administration's deal with Mexico not to impose tariffs in return for more border protection efforts had been negotiated months ago. Still, the United States has been loath to escalate tensions with Russian Federation by making a move that Moscow would no doubt see as a direct threat.

During the meeting, Trump also touched on the possibility of sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 project and warned Germany not to be dependent on Russian energy. "And it's unfortunate", Trump said. Supporters contend Moscow's decision to rewrite the map of Ukraine with its 2014 annexation of Crimea justifies a larger North Atlantic Treaty Organisation force in Poland to deter Russian military adventurism. "Going forward, I urge the Department of Defense to continue its focus on options for improving USA force posture in Europe, as well as the Indo-Pacific region, in accordance with the National Defense Strategy".

"They get hurt, unfortunately, too often, right?"
