  • President Donald Trump stood in Krasinski Square in Warsaw, Poland, early Thursday and vowed that "the West will never, ever be broken." The New York Times reports that Trump stood before a monument commemorating the 1944 Warsaw Uprising and said, "The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive."  Trump's visit to Poland came ahead of a two-day summit meeting of the so-called Group of 20 in Germany. High on Trump's agenda in Hamburg is his first face-to-face meeting as president with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
