In Europe, Trump warns that terrorism is increasingly threatening western values

On his visit to Poland, Donald Trump took the time to make a point to the European continent that Islamic jihad is increasingly endangering western values, and the press can't keep themselves from casting his stance in a negative light:
President Trump on Thursday reaffirmed the United States' bond with European allies, calling their pact as “strong as ever.” Yet he argued in a speech here that Western values are increasingly imperiled by terrorism and extremism.

In a dark and provocative address with nationalist overtones, Trump said that “the fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive.”

“Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost?”
Trump said. “Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?”

The president delivered his remarks at the site of a Warsaw monument to the 1944 Polish resistance against German occupation, a symbol of the country’s struggle to shake the brutal Nazi invasion during World War II. He cast Poland as an example of a nation that had persevered despite grave challenges, saying it offered “the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken, and who have never forgotten who they are.”
Notice how the Washington Post won't resist the opportunity to depict Trump's position negatively, judging by how they imply he used "nationalist overtones". That's disgraceful how they make nationalism in itself out to be something bad. That's just what European PC advocates started doing after WW2, even though it was American nationalism that helped to defeat nazism.
The stop in Poland was a highly symbolic one for the new American president. The Eastern European nation is a critical U.S. ally and strategically important state in Europe. Poland is one of the few NATO countries to have honored an agreement to contribute at least 2 percent of their gross domestic product to their own defense, an issue that Trump has repeatedly raised during his campaign and since taking office.

But Trump said that military spending alone is not enough to preserve Western civilization.

“We can have the largest economies and the most lethal weapons of anywhere on Earth, but if we do not have strong families and strong values, then we will be weak and we will not survive,” Trump said. “If anyone forgets the critical importance of these things, let them come to one country that never has. Let them come to Poland, and let them come here to Warsaw and learn the story of the Warsaw Uprising.”
Exactly. Without some sturdy values, we can't expect to defeat jihadism. That's one of the reasons why, for example, people can't just have less children or resort to abortions.
“While we will always welcome new citizens who share our values and love our people, our borders will always be closed to terrorism and extremism,” Trump said. “We cannot accept those who reject our values and who use hatred to justify violence against the innocent.”

At the news conference earlier in the day, Trump praised Poland for aiding in the fight against the Islamic State. And in his public remarks, he suggested that the two nations' shared position on refugees was not aimed at closing their respective borders but rather was an effort to protect their nations from extremism.

“We must stand united against these shared enemies to strip them of their territory, their funding, their networks and any form of ideological support,” Trump said.
I think much of Trump's speech was very inspiring and crucial to fighting terrorism. We have to hope that western Europe will listen.
