Montenegro more puzzled than affronted by Trump's attention

Offended by Trump’s comment Montenegro claims ‘permanent friendship’ with US

"I've asked the same question", Trump replied.

"In today's world, it does not matter how big or small you are, but to what extent you cherish the values of freedom, solidarity and democracy", the government said in a statement.

Speaking to the BBC, Ranko Krivokapic, who is president of Montenegro's opposition Social Democratic Party, called Trump "the strangest president in the history of the United States".

The clause, known as Article 5, has been invoked just once - by the U.S. after the September 11, 2001, attacks. "At the same time, we are able to boldly and defensively protect and defend our own national interests".

The poll also found that while more than half of Americans disapprove of the way Trump is handling relations with Russian Federation, his performance at the Helsinki summit did not seem to have an impact on his overall approval rating. In true Trump fashion, the president took the opportunity to just kind of. freestyle on the idea of Montenegro for a few seconds. President Donald Trump: "No, by the way, they're very strong people. They're very aggressive people", Trump said. Trump seemed to insinuate that the USA might not come to the country's defense.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have split, according to reports
Liam recently recalled the toll that their high-profile split had on him, but insisted he had no regrets about taking a break. His family had been begging him to see the light for a long time, but he had faith in Miley .

Trump's jab against the smallest and newest entrant to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has further fanned worldwide uproar over his trip to Europe, where he clashed with the US's closest allies before holding a closed-door meeting with President Vladimir Putin. Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked the U.S. president about the country of 620,000. It joined the alliance despite the strong objections from Russian Federation and opposition from the large Serbian community in the country.

After traveling to Belgium and Britain, Trump stunned the world in Finland on Monday by failing to hold Putin accountable for meddling in the 2016 US election as the two stood side-by-side.

"This is the worst nightmare for the Montenegrins", said former North Atlantic Treaty Organisation supreme allied commander Gen. Wesley Clark. At present the west Balkan country now most at risk of both internal and external confrontation is the country that used to call itself Macedonia, while today the Prime Minister of said country calls it Northern Macedonia (while the President does not) and finally, the official United Nations name for the country and the name still most typically used in neighbouring Greece is "The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia".

Thus is the "equation on Montenegro", said the Peacock on Faux News, except for the entirely insignificant coincidence that his new BFF Putin has targeted Montenegro as a key geographical wedge against Russian violence in the region, having reportedly messed with its domestic politics, backed a coup and tried to assassinate its president.
