Donald Trump’s address in Warsaw on July 6 was his best as President. His prepared remarks carried the right tone and hit the mark. It was a message the Polish people were waiting to hear from America.
He called on the U.S. and its Western allies to confront common threats, declaring “Our values will prevail, our people will thrive and our civilization will triumph.”
The President added (paraphrasing): We write symphonies, pursue innovation, seek to explore and discover new frontiers, reward brilliance, strive for excellence, empower women as pillars of our society and success, and treasure the rule of law and right to free speech and free expression.
