Donald Trump has said he was considering a Polish request to establish a permanent US military base in Poland as a bulwark against Russia, noting that Warsaw was prepared to pay “billions” for the facility. Trump was speaking at a joint press conference on Tuesday with his Polish counterpart, Andrzej Duda – who had come to White House to press his government’s arguments for a base – which he jokily suggested could be called “Fort Trump”. Trump said he agreed with Duda’s arguments that Russian actions, especially the seizure of parts of Georgia and Ukraine, warranted a tough response. “I think its a very aggressive situation. I think that Russian has acted aggressively. They respect force. They respect strength, as anyone does. And we have the greatest strength in the world, especially now,” Trump said. The US currently supplies most of the troops, about 900, for a rotating Nato battalion in Poland as part of the alliance … [Read more...] about ‘Fort Trump’: Donald Trump proposes US military base in Poland

Susan Page USA TODAY Published 4:27 AM EDT Sep 11, 2018 NEW YORK – Bob Woodward titled his new book "Fear," the word Donald Trump once told the journalist described "real power." But the author had other possibilities in his pocket: "Crazytown," a quote he attributes to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, or maybe the phrase that Kelly's predecessor, Reince Priebus, used to describe the Trump administration: "Zoo Without Walls." All the names suggest the portrait Woodward paints of a White House in chaos, led by an erratic president whose own top aides maneuver to prevent him from taking steps they worry could be catastrophic. The book, being published Tuesday by Simon and Schuster, already has gotten the president's attention. "The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources," he declared in one of a string of derisive tweets Monday. … [Read more...] about Bob Woodward on Donald Trump in ‘Fear’: Is it time to feel afraid?

DONALD Trump scribbled the words "trade is bad" on a speech he gave after the G20 summit last year, a bombshell book by Watergate journalist Bob Woodward reveals. Woodward also claimed Trump's top economic adviser stole a memo about ending a trade deal with South Korea from his desk "to protect the country" in an astonishing breach of White House security.

THE last known Nazi collaborator to be living in the United States has been arrested and sent packing to Germany where he is set to face justice at last. On the order of President Donald Trump, immigration agents removed 95-year-old Jakiw Palij from his home in Queens, New York, in a dawn raid. Palij lived quietly in the US for years, as a draftsman and then as a retiree. But nearly three decades ago investigators found his name on an old Nazi roster and a fellow former guard spilled the secret that he was "living somewhere in America". Palij told Justice Department investigators who showed up at his door in 1993: "I would never have received my visa if I told the truth. "Everyone lied." A judge stripped Palij's citizenship in 2003 for "participation in acts against Jewish civilians" while an armed guard at the Trawniki camp in Nazi-occupied Poland and was ordered deported a year later. But because Germany, Poland, Ukraine, and other countries refused to take him, he continued … [Read more...] about Donald Trump deports Nazi death camp guard whose secret past was discovered after he was detained by US immigration officials
