President Donald Trump is welcoming Polish President Andrzej Duda to the White House for an announcement on boosting the U.S. military presence in the European country.
During an Oval Office meeting Wednesday with Poland's President Andrzej Duda, Trump said he is considering moving about 2,000 additional troops into Poland from elsewhere in Europe.
He cautioned, however, that the decision isn't final, saying "We're giving it serious thought."
Polish leaders have been lobbying for additional forces for months and had hoped for a permanent U.S. base they said could be called "Fort Trump."
The leaders are scheduled to participate in a "joint signing ceremony" Wednesday before they go to the Rose Garden for a news conference.
