'Fort Trump' is dead

WARSAW/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Fort Trump appears to have fallen.

On June 12 last year, Trump agreed, with Polish President Andrzej Duda beside him at the White House, to send 1,000 more troops to his NATO ally, bolstering its defenses against Russia to the east and cementing bilateral ties.

3. Trump Dump

Nice ring to it. But it might be mistaken for one of his real estate projects.
