Poland’s President Andrzej Duda gave happy birthday wishes in advance to President Donald Trump during their speeches at a reception honoring Americans with Polish heritage on Wednesday, June 12.
“In two days, America will celebrate the great anniversary. It will be the day of the birth – a new anniversary of the day of the birth of the 45th President of the United States of America, Mr. Donald Trump,” President Duda said with applause and singing from the audience following.
“Happy Birthday, Mr. President! Happy birthday to you. May all your dreams come true, Mr. President,” the Polish leader continued.
“May the first term of your presidency be the introduction to the second one,” President Duda added, referring to President Trump’s re-election plan to be declared next week.
President Trump was born on June 14, 1946, at the Jamaica Hospital in the borough of Queens, New York City.
Trump and First Lady Melania attended the reception to cap off a visit by Duda after the two leaders had reached an agreement to increase the presence of U.S. troops in Poland, a move seen to reinforce the NATO alliance to confront Russia.
During a joint press conference at the White House earlier on Wednesday, President Trump said the United States would deploy 1,000 more servicemen and servicewomen to Poland, and Warsaw would help pay for the infrastructure to support the additional troops.
The president also praised Poland for its increased defense spending to meet its NATO commitments, according to The Associated Press.
In economic cooperation, President Trump said the two countries have agreed to increased sales of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Poland.
President Trump also revealed that he may visit Poland again in September following his first visit to the Central European country in July 2017.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations between Poland and the United States in 1919.
