Trump vowed to win the battle against extremism saying while the USA will "always welcome new citizens who share our values our borders will always be closed to terrorism".

President Trump sought to reset his relationship with Europe today with a speech in Warsaw that emphasised shared values and warned that the future of the West was at risk. "And frankly, that patience is over", Trump said June 30 during a press conference with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Donald Trump's policy failures on the worldwide front have nearly been overshadowed by his repeated handshake mistakes.

"Poland is the geographic heart of Europe, but more importantly, in the Polish people, we see the soul of Europe". "We hope that the Three Seas nations will advance the same goals we are working on to achieve for our people in America", Trump said and touted the economic progress that the USA has made with the stock market and the unemployment rate.

Mr Trump has a history of awkward handshakes ever since he refused German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Oval Office offer in March.

Even simple photographs of Putin and Trump shaking hands or meeting face-to-face pose a political risk for the U.S. president and will likely be weaponized by his foes in the United States.

The 7News channel, citing police sources, reports that the incident was not terror related but was "a case of operator error". His identity has not been released and the cause of the crash is under investigation, according to state police.

The president also had tough words for Russian Federation on Thursday, though he did not fully endorse allegations, backed by USA intelligence agencies, that Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential election that he won.

"We're here at this historic gathering to launch a new future for open, fair, and affordable energy markets that bring greater security and prosperity to all of our citizens". The President must begin by standing for the most basic democratic values.

And although he spoke in Krasinski Square, where a monument commemorates the 1944 Warsaw uprising against the Nazis, he skipped a visit to a museum devoted to a 1943 uprising by Jews who had been forced into a ghetto. By allying with this kind of regime, President Trump makes it more hard to build strong support among key North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies who fear authoritarian movements.

President Trump's speech in Warsaw cast the fight against terrorism as a clash of civilizations, adopting a framework that his two predecessors had determinedly avoided and linking it to his controversial policies on immigration.
