While speaking to reporters at a joint press conference in Warsaw with the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, President Trump bashed the American press - specifically, CNN and NBC News - as "fake news".
He was talking about how the people of Poland dealt invasions from the west and the east when he blurted out: "In 1939 you were invaded yet again by Nazi Germany from the west, and the Soviet Union in the east".

"The basic question of the speech is are we as a civilization confident enough in our own values to defense and preserve our civilization", the official said.
After addressing reporters on USA relations with Poland, Trump was asked a two-pronged question that segued from whether he would launch military action against North Korea, to his thoughts about what has happened since he posted the now infamous CNN-bashing GIF on Sunday. He finally conceded that Russian Federation had probably interfered, but was not entirely convinced. "Very, very badly", Trump said.
He added: "Nobody really knows for sure".

Nevertheless, those who came to hear Trump speak received his discourse with enthusiasm. It was during this discussion of terrorism that Trump brought up Syria's use of chemical weapons; like the Trump administration, the Polish government has been opposed to admitting Syrian refugees.
Trump will also meet with other leaders from Western Europe in order to discuss topics such as trade, energy and immigration. He referenced terror attacks across the world, vowing that "we will confront them and we will win".
He went on to say that not all US media are "fake news", but that America needs a more fair press.More news: AAA says 2017 July 4th holiday travel will break record
Trump added, "We can not accept those who reject our values, and who use hatred to justify violence against the innocent".
