By PATRICK KIMANZI – Editor & AgenciesPresident Donald Trump pledged to Polish President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday that he will deploy 1,000 US. troops to Poland, a step sought by Warsaw to deter potential aggression from Russia.Trump announced the troop deployment at a joint news conference with Duda in the White House Rose Garden shortly after the two leaders signed a joint declaration affirming defense cooperation and watched a US-made F-35 fighter jet fly overhead.Duda, who is considering naming the US installation “Fort Trump,” said the new influx of troops was needed because of Moscow’s past aggression against Poland and to help solidify his country’s ties to the West.Despite their strong show of unity, Trump disagreed with Duda’s attempt to force the retirement of some Polish Supreme Court judges, a decision last year that prompted protests. “No,” Trump said when asked if he supported the move.The decision by Trump represents an effort to cater to the interests of Poland, a key NATO ally, while not overly antagonizing Russian President Vladimir Putin, with whom Trump would like to have friendly relations. He and Putin are to meet in Japan in two weeks.To read the full story – http://v.duta.us/_nKaNQEAPicture credit – http://v.duta.us/YvbLbwAA✨ _Promoted_
