Trump mulls increasing U.S. troop levels in Poland

A senior Trump administration official said the White House meeting would see the two leaders make

President Trump announces his support of Poland's construction of the Baltic Pipeline.

Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said Wednesday that he approved of the agreement between Trump and Duda.

"But I hope Poland is going to have a great relationship with Russian Federation".

An additional 1,000 US military troops will be deployed to Poland to join about 4,500 now there, a senior White House official said.

Poland has sought to entice Trump into bolstering U.S. commitment to the country's defense, including by appealing to the President's ego, even floating the notion of naming the base for United States troops "Fort Trump".

Trump, who has a history of appearing to defer to Russian Federation, seemed to downplay Duda's concerns.

"I think the German people aren't very happy about it".

"No, I hope that Russian Federation and Poland and Germany and everybody is going to get along".

"This will be a very good and very fruitful day, because it will change both the shape of Polish-American military cooperation, as well as cooperation on energy issues", Krzysztof Szczerski, Duda's chief of staff, said on Wednesday.

Officials said Tuesday that the preliminary agreement avoids any permanent US base or presence in the country and sticks instead to a rotational force.

Last year, Duda pitched the idea of a permanent United States base in Poland, attempting to stroke the USA president's ego by suggesting it be called Fort Trump.

A senior administration official on Tuesday said the USA wants to underscore its commitment to the defense of the region, and said Poland is a key partner.

"Everything is excellent", Duda added. He said Poland is going to be spending a lot of money on a military facility for the troops. Critics have accused the Polish government of taking steps to undermine the judiciary and the news media. "This shows the strong commitment of the USA to European security & the strength of the transatlantic bond", he said in a tweet. 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. That includes stationing four multinational battalion-size battlegroups in alliance members Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, led respectively by the U.S., Britain, Canada and Germany.

The rare White House flyover is the first for the US military's most advanced aircraft. "Going forward, I urge the Department of Defense to continue its focus on options for improving US force posture in Europe, as well as the Indo-Pacific region, in accordance with the National Defense Strategy".
