Trump Congratulates Poland on 80th Anniversary of Nazi Invasion

HeadlineSep 04, 2019

As commemoration ceremonies took place over the weekend to mark the 80th anniversary of Germany’s invasion of Poland, President Trump sent a message of congratulations to Poland for the Nazi invasion. At a Sunday press conference, Trump said, “It’s a great country with great people.” Meanwhile, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier asked Poland for forgiveness and referred to the German invasion of Poland in 1939 as a “war crime.” Trump had been scheduled to be at an official ceremony in Warsaw this weekend but canceled the trip due to Hurricane Dorian. Vice President Mike Pence was in attendance.
