Washington, September 26 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump has confirmed that the United States is considering building a permanent U.S. military base in Poland.
During a White House meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Trump said: "We're looking at it very seriously. I know Poland likes the idea very much."
Poland's president confirmed the military installation in his country and has suggested naming the base "Fort Trump." Poland reportedly wants an increased U.S. presence as a counter to what it has described as 'Russian aggression' in the region.
