President Donald Trump said on Tuesday the United States is considering a request from Poland for a permanent U.S. military presence in the fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation country, acknowledging that he shares Poland's concerns about possible Russian aggression.

Poland has long sought to have the US bolster its presence in Eastern Europe as a counter to Russian Federation, and Polish President Andrzej Duda said at the White House that the base could be called "Fort Trump" if that would speed the process.

Trump said he shared Duda's concern about Russian Federation but that Russian Federation respects strength and that the United States has strengthened its military under his leadership.

Mr Duda made a direct appeal in their joint press conference saying that a permanent base would be named "Fort Trump" in honour of the United States leader.

Trump says he's "very seriously" considering a greater USA troop presence in Poland as he meets with that country's president at the White House.

Poland offered to spend up to $2 billion for the U.S.to build a permanent military base.

Trump added the United States was interested in exploring the possibility of constructing the base.

Asked if he agreed, Trump said, "I am with the president". The U.S. president said it was "something we will discuss". Duda's statements at the Tuesday briefing indicate Warsaw is indeed more than eager to have a permanent United States base on their soil.

US President Donald Trump walks with Polish President Andrzej Duda to the Oval Office of the White House.

"I feel so badly for him that he's going through this, to be honest with you, I feel so badly for him", Trump said.

"I think it's a very aggressive situation".

Mr Duda's latest plea comes after Warsaw's defence ministry offered the United States up to £1.52billion ($2bn) to increase the U.S. presence in the country as a deterrent against a potential Russian aggression.

Duda noted Polish purchases of American arms and said he wants to buy more.

Polish President Andrzej Duda, eager to secure a commitment, said his country would not only help pay for the facility but name it "Fort Trump". "They respect force. They respect strength, as anyone does, and we have the greatest strength in the world, especially now". Ben Hodges, a well-known Russian Federation hawk, has argued that stationing the American military in Poland permanently would be seen as unnecessarily provocative by fellow members of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and divide the alliance.

Trump also fielded a question about sexual assault accusations leveled against his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, again praising Kavanaugh and questioning why the allegation wasn't brought up earlier.
