Speaking at a famous monument to the 1944 Warsaw uprising on Thursday, President Trump spoke of some of the horrors experienced by the country's Jewish population during the 20th century, making direct reference not only to the Holocaust but also the Warsaw Ghetto and the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising specifically.
“A vibrant Jewish population — the largest in Europe — was reduced to almost nothing after the Nazis systematically murdered millions of Poland’s Jewish citizens, along with countless others, during that brutal occupation,” Trump said during his speech at Krasinski Square.
However, while he acknowledged the horrors of the Warsaw Ghetto's history, Trump also made his own history during his trip to Poland — becoming the first U.S. president to visit the Polish capital and not visit the site of the Warsaw Ghetto since the fall of Communism.
