    (Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump said the U.S. is looking “very seriously” at establishing a permanent military base in Poland -- and Polish President Andrzej Duda, eager to secure a deal, suggested it be named “Fort Trump.”

    Trump raised the possibility of a new U.S. base in Poland in a meeting with Duda in the Oval Office on Tuesday. He said at a news conference with the Polish leader that Duda had offered to pay more than $2 billion toward construction.

    “Poland is willing to make a very major contribution to the United States to come in and have a presence in Poland,” Trump said in the Oval Office. “If they’re willing to do that, it’s something we will certainly talk about.”

    This would be great. I agree we need to get out of Germany, it’s becoming less and less safe here thanks to Merkel’s open door policy to third world rapists and terrorists. Poland on the other hand has their shit together.

    The whole world has Trump figured out, kiss his ass a little, stroke his ego and he is theirs.

    We need to be bringing troops home, not moving them around

    We need bases in Europe to keep Russia in check and to fight Muslim scum in the ME. Not that you understand or care about such things.

    Duda is smart. The Orange Virus would never say no to having something named after his 'brand'.

    Well I suppose we have to spend our stupidly high defense budget on something.

    Monroe Doctrine. Because of the threat of Russian aggression in former Communist countries, our national interests have expanded beyond the Caribbean and South America.

    Hell, JFK even cited the Monroe Doctrine as grounds for his confrontation with the Soviet Union over the installation of Soviet ballistic missiles on Cuban soil.

    Most of our bases are in Germany, where the cost of living is astronomical and it is getting more dangerous for us Americans working over here thanks to Merkel’s pro-Muslim immigration. Moving to Poland would save taxpayers a lot of money and make it safer for us and the families over here.
