Trump commits to NATO defense, slams Russian aggression says Western civilisation at stake in Warsaw

Mr Trump Speaking to a huge crowd in Poland, he said Europeans should never question the U.S. commitment to NATO.

“The United States has demonstrated not merely with words but with its actions that we stand firmly behind Article 5,” Mr. Trump said in a speech to tens of thousands of cheering Poles. He had raised concerns in the spring when, during a visit to NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, he neglected to mention Article 5.

But Mr. Trump reminded the audience in Poland, “Our defense is not just a commitment of money, it is a commitment of will.”

“The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive,” Mr. Trump said in Krasinski Square in Warsaw. “Our own fight for the West does not begin on the battlefield — it begins with our minds, our wills, and our souls.”

Donald Trump is in Poland ahead of a G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

The president was addressing a large, cheering crowd from the monument to the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, on the city's Krasinski Square.

Trump in his speech also said, "As the Polish experience reminds us, the defence of the West ultimately rests not only on means but also on the will of its people to prevail," Mr Trump said.

"The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive."
