President Donald Trump is breaking with tradition by visiting Poland, an ex-communist country in central Europe, before making a presidential visit to longtime allies Britain, France or Germany.There are several other reasons that also make Poland a logical early destination for the new U.S. president.Like Trump, Poland's leaders seek to restore more national sovereignty and weaken international institutions like the European Union.There is also concern Trump's visit could embolden the Polish government and encourage what the EU sees as an erosion of the rule of law in Poland.Some NATO allies have also been annoyed by Trump's repeated calls for them to increase military spending.After months of waffling on that defense pact, Trump finally did so in June standing alongside the Romanian president in the Rose Garden.
