On the day before the G20 summit opened in Hamburg, Germany, U.S. President Donald Trump visited the Polish capital Warsaw for a conference attended by leaders of 12 Middle Eastern and European countries.

After his joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Trump gave a speech in Krasinski Square:

“Poland is the geographic heart of Europe, but more importantly, in the Polish people, we see the soul of Europe. Your nation is great because your spirit is great and your spirit is strong.”

“For two centuries, Poland suffered constant and brutal attacks. But while Poland could be invaded and occupied, and its borders even erased from the map, it could never be erased from history or from your hearts. In those dark days, you have lost your land but you never lost your pride.”

“So it is with true admiration that I can say today, that from the farms and villages of your countryside to the cathedrals and squares of your great cities, Poland lives, Poland prospers, and Poland prevails.”

 
Trump congratulated the pride of the Polish people on their history of regaining sovereignty after being invaded. The square resounded with rapturous applause.

 

Countries That Believe in God, Unite

Until just a few decades ago, Poland was a Satellite state of the Soviet Union. Soviet communism deprived the Poles of freedoms such as religious activity, and in amidst this oppression Polish-born Pope John Paul II visited his homeland to encourage the people.

In his speech, Trump stated “when a million Polish men, women and children suddenly raised their voices in a single prayer . . . one million Poles sang three simple words: “We Want God”.”
In those words, said Trump, the Poles “found new courage to face down their oppressors” and that “the people of Poland, the people of America, and the people of Europe still cry out “We want God”.”

He emphasized that faith in God is important to the countries of the West, and spoke about the threats of terrorism and religious radicals. He urged the Muslim nations and Russia to fight terrorism and radical Islam, and fervently spoke of the need to unite power.

 

Trump’s Diplomatic Intentions

In May, Trump chose the Middle East as his first destination for a diplomatic visit, and gave a speech in Islam’s holiest city Mecca, Saudi Arabia. In front of over 50 leaders from Muslim countries, he affirmed the need to eradicate terrorism and radical Islam in order to protect faith in God. What is important is his stance of cooperation between fellow religious believers.
At the G20 summit, he held his first talk with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and agreed to a cease-fire in Syria. Despite their support for different forces, the U.S. and Russia decided to join hands to defeat the common enemy: ISIS.

These maneuvers reveal how Trump is trying to gather countries with varying opinions to join together in order to resolve global issues.

His subtle balancing of international relations is evidence of this fact. When he made his diplomatic visits, he visited first the countries with strong anti-America sentiments. Then he went to and addressed the people of Poland: a country wary of Russia. He did all of this before finally facing Putin directly.

Trump intends to avoid a show of bias towards any one country, while establishing a grand international network to eradicate elements that threaten world order.

The U.S. liberal media, however, have warped Trump’s Poland visit with headlines such as “Trump’s white-nationalist dog whistled in Warsaw”.

If we put our prejudices aside and take a proper look at what Trump is saying, he can see whereto he is headed. On the surface, he may look like he is recklessly throwing the world into confusion, but behind all this is a grand strategy for Pax Gaia.
