In another tweet less than an hour earlier, Trump thanked the "haters" for the "great reviews" of his address in Warsaw, Poland, on Thursday.
My experience yesterday in Poland was a great one. Thank you to everyone, including the haters, for the great reviews of the speech!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 7, 2017
Trump's speech in Warsaw echoed the stark tone of his inaugural address in January, casting Western civilization as under attack and warning against the dangers posed by "radical Islamic terror."
The address on Thursday came just before Trump departed for Hamburg ahead of the annual G-20 summit.
Trump is likely to face criticism by some leaders at the summit for his decision in June to withdraw the U.S. from the landmark Paris climate agreement, which is still widely supported by the international community.
