Watch Trump’s Reaction After Polish President Proposes New Military Base Called ‘Fort Trump’

If Polish president Andrzej Duda wanted to work his way into Donald Trump‘s good graces by putting his American counterpart’s name on something big and important, he might’ve just succeeded.

Duda and Trump held a joint press conference from the White House on Tuesday following discussions about NATO and international defense across Europe. As Duda gave his opening remarks and expressed interest in defense projects in conjunction with the U.S., he proposed the construction of a permanent military base that would be named after Trump.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I was smiling when talking to Mr. President, and I said I would very much like for us to set up a permanent American base in Poland, which we would call Fort Trump and I firmly believe this is possible. I am convinced that such a decision lies both in the Polish interest as well as in the interest of the United States.”

When you watch the clip, take notice of how Trump seemed to perk up at how his name was invoked.
