Montenegro, replying to Trump, says it contributes to peace in Europe

Trump Montenegro Has Very Strong People. Very Aggressive People

"Donald Trump!" Such response would be unimaginable in Berlin. And ahead of the Putin summit, Trump had even expressed concern over the cost of maintaining a United States military presence in Germany.

About this American leader said in an interview with TV host Tucker Carlson on the Fox News channel, which aired the evening of Tuesday, July 17, reports DW.

More specifically, he was asked about Article 5, the organisation's joint defence agreement, which basically says that if any of the 29 countries in NATO get attacked by an outsider, the rest will jump in to defend it. But an unsupervised face-to-face meeting with Putin, with no opportunities for other United States officials to influence decisions, held the danger of far more damaging outcomes than the further discrediting of Trump himself. "We need to strength our aliance by investing more, and I will contineu to call on all allies to do that".

Trump responded: "I've asked the same question".

CARLSON: Yeah, I'm not against Montenegro. Any real threat would require Montenegro to pair up with someone much stronger - say, Russian Federation - and to serve as a base for their forces. "They are very aggressive people, they may get aggressive, and congratulations, you are in World War III", he added.

"I understand, but that's the way it was set up", he continued.

If fact, one of the last Cold War confrontations occurred in Montenegro and was handled peacefully by government interlocutors despite two very hopped-up parties.

That the leader of the world's dominant superpower would characterize the 620,000 or so Montenegrins as "very strong" and "very aggressive people" rendered their government speechless.

Donald Trump backtracks on Helsinki remarks, says he 'misspoke'
On Tuesday , Trump said he misspoke and instead meant to say he didn't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation . And it will now be etched as part of Trump's presidency, no matter how many double negatives he tries to claim .

In its 12 years of independence, the tiny country has not once come close to starting a war.

DARMANOVIC: We confirm our strong friendship and alliance with the United States.

However, Trump was so fixated during the press conference on domestic U.S. politics and his own personal obsession with his election win that there was no mention either of Putin's points or of any of the more significant security issues that could have been on the table.

More: What is North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and why is President Trump slamming it? We can trust her to join with her like-minded colleagues (let's hope they're a majority next January) to oppose Trump's reckless actions.

And for another, the obligation goes both ways.

This is technically true - only four of the 29 countries are exceeding NATO's current guideline for what they should be contributing to the organisation, which is two per cent of each country's gross domestic product (GDP). "We have discussed this at length. there must be more burden-sharing when it comes to defending worldwide rules-based order, when it comes to enforcing the rules and norms, and when it comes to promoting and advocating peace and stability around the world".

There's nothing authoritarian Russian Federation wants more than to see a divided Europe, and for the U.S. to retreat from the region.

Montenegrin authorities accused Russian Federation of being behind a foiled coup in 2016 that was meant to kill the country's pro-NATO prime minister.
