President Trump's name appears on dozens of buildings worldwide, but if the leader of Poland has his way, properties like Trump Tower and Trump International Hotel may soon be joined by a conspicuously named military installation: Fort Trump.
Speaking with Trump and reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday, Poland's president, Andrzej Duda, told Trump that he'd like the U.S. to create a permanent military base with that name in Poland -- and that Poland would pay more than $2 billion for the project.
Duda emphasized that his country was "willing to make a very major contribution to the United States to come in and have a presence in Poland."
Trump said he would consider the proposal. Facing Russia's increased military activity in the region, Poland has been pressing for the 3,000 U.S. troops now deployed in Poland on a temporary, rotating basis to be upgraded to a larger, permanent presence

Top it off with hanging two really big brass balls over the main gate.
This is a great idea...let Germany rot.
If they will take an 80+ year old, I’ll go. Spent some time there years back; loved the place.
Of all the European countries to place a military installation, Poland would be my first choice!!
and they’re paying for it! Unlike the effing krauts..
Oops just posted this. Didn’t see yours. Well great news anyway. :)
Do it and move every soldier out of Germany to Poland.
I think this is a GREAT idea. Remember Kosciuszko and Pulaski. They contributed significantly to the success of our revolution.
God Bless Poland.
The look on President Trump’s face..PRICELESS :-) Sounds like a good idea to me
Idziesz do Polaków!
Fort Trump gonna be in Poland, Duda! Duda! All the live long day!
Husband’s family’s is of Polish descent.
Germany does not charge the U.S. for the bases that our Army uses in their country, and provides some money to offset the costs.
Instead of going to Poland, rename Fort Drum to Fort Trump and move the troops to New York.
Yes...Fort Donald J. Trump...
That will frost the libs!
Fort Trump. Sounds like something our of an old Wild West movie. I approve.
Have any other countries asked for a military base in their country, nevermind offer to pay for part of it?
Not that I believe we should have any overseas bases.
I’ll go, sign me up. Oh, I’m 58? Hope that’s not a deal breaker!
