Trump Meets With Polish President at Trump Tower

By    |   Wednesday, 17 April 2024 10:46 PM EDT

Former President Donald Trump hosted Polish President Andrzej Duda at Trump Tower on Wednesday evening, U.S. News & World Report reported.

Trump, who is staying in New York City while he attends his hush money trial, has met with several foreign leaders in the past few weeks since locking up the GOP presidential nomination. Last week, Trump met with British Foreign Secretary David Cameron at Mar-a-Lago.

"He's doing a fantastic job. The people of Poland love him; they really do," Trump said of Duda.

"He's my friend, and we had four great years together," Trump added.

Duda, whose term ends in 2025, proposed naming a military base in his home country "Fort Trump" during a visit with Trump at the White House in 2020.

While Trump and Duda enjoy an amicable relationship, one major area of discussion is likely to be Ukraine. Poland is a member of NATO that also happens to share a border with Ukraine.

Although Duda shares some of Trump's populist leanings, he has been a stalwart proponent of additional aid for Ukraine, anxious that if Russia succeeds in Ukraine, Putin's next target will be Poland. Trump's Republican allies in the House have held up Ukraine aid, stressing that it be tied to U.S. border security.

"I have been invited by Mr. Donald Trump to his private apartment," Duda told reporters, saying it was "a normal practice when one country has good relations with another country" to want those relations to be as strong as "possible with the representatives of various sides of the political stage."

"We know each other as people. Like two, I can say in some way, friends," said Duda.

Trump has been highly critical of many NATO countries' lack of defense spending.

"I have never talked with President Donald Trump about my proposal of raising the spending on defense of NATO countries from 2% to 3% of GDP, but I think that his approach to it will be positive," Duda said.

Trump has also reportedly met with Hungarian President Viktor Orban and had a phone call with Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, according to The New York Times.
