WARSAW, Poland (WTXF/AP) - President Trump is delivering a speech from Krasinski Square, the site of a monument commemorating the 1944 Warsaw Uprising against Nazi occupation.
Crowds waving U.S. and Polish flags gathered ahead of his speech in and around the square, where TV screens were erected to allow more people to see Trump.
Yet the visit drew some criticism from Poland's Jewish community, which said it regretted Trump was skipping the traditional presidential visit to a memorial honoring those who fought and died in the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
In his speech, Trump planned to call on Poland and all of America's European allies to stand united against extremism and other "shared enemies" that pose a threat to freedom and sovereignty, according to excerpts of his speech released by the White House in advance.
"We must work together to counter forces, whether they come from inside or out, from the South or the East, that threaten over time to undermine these values and to erase the bonds of culture, faith and tradition that make us who we are," Trump planned to say.
