The Polish president will leave for Washington on Tuesday, June 23, and is to return home on Thursday, June 25, just three days before the first round of the presidential election.
Duda will be the first foreign president to be received in the White House since the outbreak of the pandemic.
Polish commentator Marcin Makowski tweeted that important military declarations will be on the table during the talks and that it would be a huge success for Duda to ensure that more U.S. troops are stationed in Poland:
“First Donald Trump meeting with a foreign leader since the pandemic, important military declarations on the table. If a transfer of thousands of additional US troops can be secured, it would be a huge achievement.”
