Trump and Duda signed a joint declaration on cooperation in the field of defense. This was not the first such document. In June, it was reported that Andrzej Duda and Donald Trump signed a declaration on the expansion of the US military contingent in Poland.

In addition, on September 23, the US president informed his Polish counterpart of his intention to include Poland in the Visa-Free Travel Program in his country in the coming weeks.
