Asked by a reporter on Thursday if he had a message for Poland on the anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, Trump touted his popularity in the country.
“Do you have a message for Poland on their anniversary of Warsaw Uprising,” the reporter asked the president.
“Well, I have a lot of respect for Poland, and as you know the people of Poland like me. And I like them,” Trump explained.
“And I’m going to be going to Poland fairly soon,” Trump added.
“And I know they are building an installation that – and they are putting in all of the money, 100 percent of the money. So they’re building something very nice for the United States to have,” Trump continued.

Trump made no reference to the Warsaw Uprising which was a major World War II operation, in the summer of 1944, by the Polish underground resistance, led by the Home Army, to liberate Warsaw from German occupation.
The uprising was timed to coincide with the retreat of the German forces from Poland ahead of the Soviet advance.
