Trump: Some say I gave 'the best speech ever made by a president in Europe'
By Brett Samuels - 06/12/19 02:16 PM EDT

President Trump on Wednesday boasted that "some people" referred to his remarks during a 2017 visit to Poland as "the best speech ever made by a president in Europe."

While taking questions from reporters during an Oval Office meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda Trump was asked whether he planned to accept an invitation to return to Poland. Trump said he believes he will at some point, then recounted his 2017 visit to the country.


"I just had an incredible time. That speech was special from the standpoint of the people of Poland, and I know it was considered a very important speech. You people even gave me very high marks on that speech," he said of the press in the room.

It was a decent speech.  It wasn't anywhere near the level of "The Boys of Pont du Hoc".

I believe his target was Obama. Remember how the media swooned over his Berlin speech.

And they bite. Every single time.

None who heard Reagan give The Boys of Pont duHoc will ever forget that speech.
