Trump, who looked annoyed at times by Duda's long answers, jumped in at one point to note that Poland has promised to pay "billions of dollars for a base". Duda credited Trump for making Warsaw the first stop on the US president's inaugural European trip previous year and said Trump's speech was a "very important moment" for the relationship between the two countries.
