The ruling party will bus in 50 people per parliamentarian, according to the Gazeta Wyborcza newspaper, guaranteeing a friendly crowd of thousands for President Trump's speech in Warsaw's symbolic Krasinski Square on Thursday. In what has to be acknowledged as wily diplomacy, the Law and Justice (PiS) government is appealing to the USA president's achilles heel: his vanity, reportedly luring him with promises of adoring crowds, in contrast to the chillier receptions he can expect in western Europe.
On Monday, Poland's pro-government Gazeta Polska newspaper ran a full-page advertisement inviting readers to the USA president's "first speech in Europe", and to a picnic to follow at the national sports stadium.
PiS is working hard to tickle Trump's ego.
US President Donald Trump lashed out at China Wednesday, pointing to a surge in its trade with North Korea as evidence that US reliance on Beijing to rein in Pyongyang was misplaced. "[Others] envy it, the British are attacking us because of it". "People want to see Trump for themselves, he's the most important man in the world".
While Trump-Merkel interactions will be closely watched, the big moment for body-language analysis will occur Friday, when Trump and Putin lock eyes for the first time. In the past, he's offered contradictory descriptions of his connections with Putin, insisting during the campaign he had no recollection of meeting him but earlier stating that they spoke around the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow.
Authorities in Hamburg are expecting up to 100,000 protesters at the G20, and mass demonstrations are also expected in London when he finally makes a long-awaited state visit to the UK.
Trump will meet with Polish President Andrzej Duda and discuss economic cooperation, security and energy, according to the Associated Press. Trump has had three phone calls with Putin since taking office.
Serge Ibaka Signs Three-Year Deal To Stay With Raptors
The Raptors also won over 50 games in each of the last two years, the only time this feat has been accomplished in its history. The point guard market probably wasn't as large or lucrative as he expected, but he's still going to earn a ton of money.
"He'd like the United States and the entire West to develop a more constructive relationship with Russian Federation", said the White House national security adviser, H.R. McMaster. Trump last week pledged in a speech to make the U.S. a "dominant" exporter of energy, creating jobs at home and "true energy security to our friends, partners, and allies all across the globe". But even closeted inside the confines of the Hamburg Messe conference hall, Trump is unlikely to find much agreement on his agenda.
If there is one place in Europe that President Trump might want to visit, it's Poland. Recent Pew Research suggests Poles are generally very sceptical of the USA president.
A recent Pew Research Center survey of attitudes toward Trump in more than three dozen countries found fewer than 3 in 10 respondents expressing confidence in his ability to do the right thing on global affairs. But Trump has expressed hopes of improved relations with the global power. Twice as many Poles now trust the global leadership of a German chancellor over that of an USA president, a remarkable development taking into consideration Poles' historically strong pro-US stance and post-second world war fears of "German domination", which are consistently stoked by the current government in Warsaw.
"We are very happy that the President of America would like to visit us here in Poland".
A small gathering in Poland would be a political disaster for Trump, who is notoriously prickly about crowd sizes. Don't be fooled Mr President, Poland ain't Trumpland.
Polish society may generally be more conservative and sceptical towards Muslim migrants than western European nations, but the majority of Poles are by no means fans of Trump's crass and clueless style of leadership.
