Trump is expected to receive a warm welcome in Poland, which is run by a “populist, nationalist” government, according to The Washington Post. The Post reported that Trump’s choice of Poland to start his foreign trip is regarded as a “snub” at the EU.

The Polish government is conservative, and Trump chose Poland as his first stop over “more powerful American allies like Germany, France or Britain,” The New York Times reported. The Polish will be watching for whether Trump “reaffirms the United States’ commitment to respond to an attack on another NATO member,” according to The New York Times.

After the Polish trip, Trump will head to Hamburg, Germany for the G20 summit. There, Trump will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with whom there have been tensions. He also may sit down for a much anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Among the topics on the agenda at the G20: “Trade, climate and migration,” according to CNN.


Demonstrators hold a ‘Night Dance’ protest ahead of Friday and Saturday’s G20 summit on July 5, 2017 in Hamburg, Germany. Authorities are bracing themselves for protests as world leaders including Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan are due to arrive in the city for the summit.

In contrast to the warm reception in Warsaw, Trump is expected to find protests in Hamburg.

“The United States made some of the worst Trade Deals in world history,” Trump tweeted before leaving for Poland. “Why should we continue these deals with countries that do not help us?”
