US President Donald Trump is facing criticism for hosting Poland’s president at the White House days before his visitor faces a tougher than expected fight for re-election. Trump and Polish President Andrzej Duda are scheduled to meet on Wednesday. Duda is competing for a second five-year term in Poland’s presidential election this weekend. Duda recently attracted international attention for promising to protect Polish families from what he called an “LGBT ideology” more dangerous than communism. Critics said by welcoming him Trump is giving support to those looking to discriminate against LGBTQ people and other minorities. The meeting is scheduled to take place four days before the first round of Poland’s presidential election.
