60,000 Neo-Nazis March On Warsaw Under 'We Want God' Slogan Taken From Trump Speech

Tens of thousands of white nationalists and Neo-Nazis marched in Warsaw over the weekend with a slogan that they say was inspired by a speech President Donald Trump made in their country earlier this year.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the group is calling for fewer Jews and Muslims.

In what was billed as Poland's largest independence day event, police said that 60,000 marchers took to the streets with chants of the "fatherland" and signs reading: “Europe Will Be White” and "Clean Blood.”

According to the Journal, the group adopted its slogan -- "We want God" -- from a speech Trump gave in Poland in July.

"In those words, the Polish people recalled the promise of a better future," Trump said at the time. "They found new courage to face down their oppressors, and they found the words to declare that Poland would be Poland once again.

"As I stand here today before this incredible crowd, this faithful nation, we can still hear those voices that echo through history. Their message is as true today as ever," the president continued. "The people of Poland, the people of America, and the people of Europe still cry out 'We want God.'"
