WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he is considering sending 2,000 U.S. troops from Germany to Poland, a step sought by Warsaw to deter potential aggression from Russia.

McConnell softens his tariff criticisms: 'You have to give the president credit — it worked'

McConnell softens his tariff criticisms: 'You have to give the president credit — it worked' “They just can’t let the president have a win,” McConnell said in an interview on conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt’s show. Trump would have faced a GOP revolt had negotiators not struck a deal late Friday to avert the tariffs from going into effect, with some senators warning that there was a veto-proof majority in the chamber willing to block the levies. McConnell in particular made clear last week that his conference was opposed to the move, but on Tuesday he contended that Trump came out on top in the stand-off, and cheered the president for how it all eventually played out.

Trump said the United States has upwards of 50,000 troops in Germany and said 2,000 of them could be sent to Poland. He said Poland is going to be spending a lot of money on a military facility for the troops.

He also said he hopes Russia "will treat Poland with respect."

"They get hurt unfortunately too often," Trump said of the Poles. "They're in the middle of everything. When bad things happen it seems like Poland is the first one...I hope that Russia and Poland and Germany are going to get along," said Trump, who has often been criticized by Democrats for being too close to Russia and President Vladimir Putin.
