In a heated exchange echoing across social media platforms, former head of TVP, Jacek Kurski, and former Polish Prime Minister, Donald Tusk, engaged in a dispute regarding the recent decision by the US Senate concerning aid to Ukraine.
The dispute began when the US Senate made a negative ruling on a bill aimed at providing additional financial support to Ukraine, drawing swift criticism from Tusk. Taking to Twitter, Tusk expressed his disappointment, directly addressing Republican senators: “Ronald Reagan, who helped millions of us to win back our freedom and independence, must be turning in his grave today. Shame on you.”
Dear Republican Senators of America. Ronald Reagan, who helped millions of us to win back our freedom and independence, must be turning in his grave today. Shame on you.— Donald Tusk (@donaldtusk) February 8, 2024
Not one to stay silent, Jacek Kurski swiftly fired back, choosing to respond in English, perhaps to ensure his message reached a wider audience. “Ronald Reagan was a friend of Poland. Prime Minister, you are no Ronald Reagan,” Kurski retorted, emphasizing the stark contrast he perceived between Tusk’s actions and the legacy of the former US President.
Continuing the exchange, Kurski penned another English-language response directed at Tusk. “Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Poland loved Ronald Reagan for helping us to win back the freedom you are now stealing and the independence you are now selling,” Kurski wrote. He went on to portray Reagan as a symbol of strength and integrity, contrasting sharply with his characterization of Tusk’s actions.
