Polish first lady appears to miss handshake with Trump

Polish first lady appears to miss handshake with Trump

Trump met with the nation's president and field questions about how the US will respond to North Korea's first successful test launch of a missile earlier this week that was capable of reaching Alaska.

President Trump appeared to speak approvingly of Poland's approach to dealing with the Muslim migrant crisis, a vital public relations coup for the Polish government and a serious headache for the European Union.

"Because as the Polish experience reminds us - the defence of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail", Mr Trump may say, according to excerpts released from the speech.

"The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive", Trump said.

"As a result of this insistence, billions of dollars more have begun to pour into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation... the United States has demonstrated not merely with words but with its actions that we stand firmly behind Article 5, the mutual defense commitment", he said.

Energy Secretary Rick Perry went so far last week as to say the USA could make up for the animosity generated by exiting the Paris Agreement by providing cheap natural gas to other countries.

Turkish military 'returns fire' at Kurdish YPG forces
Ankara views it as Syrian branch of the PKK, which has been designated a terrorist organisation by Turkey, the USA and EU. It was not clear whether there were any casualties in the exchange of fire.

Qatar continues with negative response to the demands
The statement was issued after the foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia , the UAE, Egypt and Bahrain held a meeting in Cairo. He also warned that a raft of "fresh measures" would be taken against Qatar at the "appropriate time".

Scottish leader puts second independence referendum on hold
Unionists hoping Nicola Sturgeon would use her statement today to call off her plans for IndyRef2 have been left disappointed. The Scottish Government will not introduce legislation for an independence referendum immediately.

"We urge Russian Federation to cease its destabilizing activities in Ukraine and elsewhere, and its support for hostile regimes, including Syrian and Iran", Trump said.

Martosko was in talks with the White House recently for a position on Trump's communications team before electing to remain at the Daily Mail. "It's a fellowship that exists only among people who have fought and bled and died for freedom", Trump said.

He also stated that the US stands "firmly behind Article 5", but repeated his call that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members "finally meet their full and fair financial obligation".

Crowds waving flags cheered as Trump spoke in Krasinski Square, which is near the site of the Warsaw uprising against the Nazis in 1944. Trump also has yet to nominate a director of the National Park Service.

Trump has made a decision to pull the United States out of the Paris accord on climate change. Today's meeting between Trump and Putin will-among other things-be pored over for its significance to USA domestic politics. Several of Trump's closest aides are under investigation for possible ties with Moscow, which United States intelligence agencies say tried to tilt the November election in the Republican candidate's favor.
