President Donald Trump praised individual freedom and sovereignty on Thursday in comments apparently directed at the Europe Union.
In a speech in Warsaw, Poland, Trump condemned government bureaucracy as an infringement of personal freedom.
"On both sides of the Atlantic, our citizens are confronted by yet another danger — one firmly within our control. This danger is invisible to some but familiar to the Poles. The steady creep of government bureaucracy that drains the vitality and the wealth of people," he said, speaking next the monument to the 1944 Warsaw uprising at Krasinski Square.
"The West became great not because of paperwork and regulations but because people were allowed to chase their dreams and pursue their destinies."
