U.S. President Trump departs for travel to Florida from the White House in Washington

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday that he had officially allowed Polish entry into a U.S. visa waiver program.

Trump said last month that he would grant Poland access to the State Department's Visa Waiver Program, which allows citizens of participating countries travel to the United States for business or tourism for up to 90 days without a visa.

Poland has long sought entry into the visa waiver program.

Trump has also pledged to move 1,000 U.S. troops to Poland, with the Polish government paying to build facilities for them.
