Trump in Poland: ‘Our values will prevail’
President Trump on Thursday underlined his commitment to Western values and his willingness to stand up to Russia during a speech in Warsaw that seemed designed to reassure European allies.
“The West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail, our people will thrive, and our civilization will triumph,” Trump told an audience at Krasinski Square, where a monument to the Warsaw Uprising against German occupation stands.
Trump took a firm tone with Russia, warning Moscow to stop its “destabilizing activities” in Ukraine and its support for hostile regimes in Syria and Iran.
It was a message that seemed directed toward a Polish audience worried about Russia’s creeping influence and historic role in their country.
Trump says election meddling ‘could be Russia’ but ‘no one really knows for sure’
President Donald Trump said Thursday that he thinks Russia was behind 2016 election meddling, but added that he feels “it could have been other people in other countries” and that “no one really knows for sure.”
“I think it very well could be Russia but I think it could very well have been other countries,” Trump said during a news conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda in which he also slammed the news media, including CNN and NBC. “I think a lot of people interfere.”
Trump, asked about the fact the United States intelligence community has said it was Russia, compared that assessment to the eventually debunked claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in the lead-up to the Iraq War.
“I think it was Russia but I think it was probably other people and or countries. I see nothing wrong with that statement,” Trump said. “No one really knows. No one really knows for sure.”
Trump Weighs ‘Pretty Severe Things’ for North Korea Over Launch
President Donald Trump said he is contemplating some “pretty severe things” to retaliate against North Korea after it launched an intercontinental ballistic missile this week that brings it closer to being able to hit the U.S. mainland.
“I have some pretty severe things we’re thinking about,” Trump said at a news conference in Warsaw. “Doesn’t mean we’re going to do them. I don’t draw red lines.”
“It’s a shame they’re behaving this way and they’re behaving in a very dangerous manner, and something will have to be done about it,” Trump said.
Trump, who spoke alongside Polish President Andrzej Duda, offered no details about what he is considering and did not answer a question directly about whether he is contemplating the use of military force.
Earlier in the news conference, he said he is calling on all nations to “publicly demonstrate to North Korea that there are consequences for their very, very bad behavior.”
