A Polish crowd cheered “Donald Trump” during a speech the president gave while on his second foreign trip Thursday in Warsaw.

Trump was introduced to the people of Poland by his wife, First Lady Melania Trump. The crowd began chanting “Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Donald Trump,” very much like it was one of his campaign events or rallies, before the president began speaking.

Trump responded with smiles, and said, “Thank you very much, thats so nice.”

“Our two countries share a special bond forged by unique histories and national characters. It’s a fellowship that exists only among people who have fought and bled and died for freedom,” Trump said. “Our soldiers still serve together today in Afghanistan and Iraq, combatting the enemies of all civilization.” (RELATED: Trump Will Tell Europe To Follow Far-Right Poland’s Lead In ‘Major Speech’)

Trump spoke about the Warsaw monument, which remembers the 150,000 Polish people who died during World War II.

“The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken, and who have never, ever forgotten who they are,” Trump said.

This comment sparked another series of chants, “Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Donald Trump.”
