Trump recalls visit to Poland in Twitter message
US President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday „Happy Sunday! We want GOD!" and posted a short film of his 2017 visit to Poland and speech at Warsaw's Krasinski Square.
The tweet was a reference to the speech in which the US leader referred to Polish Pope John Paul II's first pilgrimage to Poland.
"And when the day came on June 2nd, 1979, and one million Poles gathered around Victory Square for their very first mass with their Polish pope; that day every communist in Warsaw must have known that their oppressive system would soon come crashing down," Trump said during his July 6, 2017, speech, contained in the video clip.
"When a million Polish men, women and children suddenly raised their voices in a single prayer: 'we want God'" the president continued.
"We can still hear those voices that echo through history. Their message is as true today as ever. The people of Poland, the people of America and the people of Europe still cry out 'we want God," Trump said.
The video in Trump's Sunday tweet was originally posted online on August 1 as part of White House commemorations of the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising.
"A little over three years ago, President Trump delivered one of the most important speeches of his presidency at Krasinski Square in Warsaw, Poland. Standing before a monument to the Warsaw Uprising, he called for defending Western civilization against all enemies who seek to destroy it," read the caption beneath the YouTube clip.
