In grand Warsaw speech, Trump vows to lead

Trump will then fly to Hamburg, Germany to attend the G-20 summit, where he will meet with foreign leaders including Germany's Angela Merkel and Russia's Vladimir Putin. "While we will always welcome new citizens who share our values and love our people, our borders will always be closed to terrorism and extremism". "They are behaving in a very, very serious manner, and something will have to be done about it", President Trump said.

Speaking in front of a monument to the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, Trump lavished praise on his Polish hosts and hailed their fight for freedom from Nazi and Communist rule.

Trump has previously drawn criticism for overlooking NATO's Article 5 principle - a deterrent to prevent adversaries from attacking any member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in the world - but in his speech Thursday he made his strongest show of commitment to date.

A prominent Polish newspaper has urged U.S. President Donald Trump to "support the European Union instead of weakening it" in an editorial published to coincide with Trump's arrival in Poland.

Trump also issued a Reaganesque call to tackle bureaucratic overcontrol, which he will frame as more than just an inconvenience or byproduct of a rules-based society.

A Kremlin spokesman said Moscow disagrees with Trump's description of Russia's behavior as "destabilizing" and said the Kremlin regrets that there is a lack of understanding between Russian Federation and the United States.

Trump's greetings of heads of state have been the subject of much social media furor since he took office in January.

First Lady Melania Trump warmed up the crowd in Poland's capital ahead of her husband's speech, saying that all people should be allowed to "live their lives without fear". This has been "happening a long time", Trump said without elaborating, immediately pivoting to attacking Obama for not responding to intelligence reports before Election Day suggesting interference. Pyongyang on Tuesday said it conducted a successful intercontinental ballistic missile test.
