Donald Trump Snubbed While Trying to Shake Hands With Poland's First Lady

Standing side-by-side with the Polish President Andrzej Duda, President Trump said all nations must publicly demonstrate that there are consequences for North Korea's 'very very bad behaviour'.

He also cited Poland's resistance under the Nazi and Soviet Occupations as an example of the west defending its traditions and values.

He used the speech to make the case for the U.S. and its allies to embrace the spirit of national pride that helped sustain the Polish people.

After the speech, Trump was set to travel to Hamburg, Germany, for the annual G-20 summit, where he also will have a bilateral meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive", he said, employing the same life-or-death language as in his inauguration speech, which promised a war against the "American carnage" of urban crime. On Thursday afternoon, the USA president will leave for Germany. In a PR disaster, CNN appeared to pressure the creator of the infamous Trump wrestling video to apologize and the network said it would not reveal his identity as long as he did not continue his "online behavior".

"I think it was Russian Federation, and it could have been other people in other countries", Trump said. "We (are) right now dealing with this very serious escalation, this provocation, this affront to the United Nations Security Council resolutions", he said.

Trump has this week expressed frustration that North Korea's neighbor China has not put more pressure on Pyongyang, notably through trade, to try to rein in its weapons program. "Nobody really knows, nobody really knows for sure".

Trump will also meet with other leaders from Western Europe in order to discuss topics such as trade, energy and immigration.

He praised Poland both on its achievement of the investment threshold as well as on its Wednesday decision to go ahead with the purchase of Patriot missile defence systems from the US. Trump has said he wants to look at what happens in the coming weeks and months before deciding on a new course of action.
