President Trump in Poland: “Future of Western Civilization” at Stake

HeadlineJul 06, 2017

In Poland, President Trump said in a major speech today the future of Western civilization is at stake, as he warned against the threats of “terrorism and extremism.” Trump spoke in Krasinski Square, near the site of the 1944 Warsaw uprising against the Nazis. Earlier, President Trump spoke briefly at a joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda. Trump repeated his recent attacks on CNN, calling the network “fake news.” Trump also said Russia probably meddled in the 2016 U.S. election.

President Donald Trump: “Mistakes have been made. I agree, I think it was Russia. But I think it was probably other people and/or countries, and I see nothing wrong with that statement. Nobody really knows. Nobody really knows for sure.”
