  • Trump Montenegro Has Very Strong People. Very Aggressive People

Trump questioned on Fox News Channel whether the military alliance's mutual defense pact might conceivably let tiny Montenegro start World War III.

Repeating countless times that there had been "no collusion" - even when that was not the question he had been asked - Trump focused on endorsing President Putin's denial of Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Asked whether Putin "outplayed" Trump, Continetti said it's hard to make that conclusion because it's unclear what was agreed to in their meeting. "You know, Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people".

CARLSON: Yeah, I'm not against it - or Albania.

The British government informed Trump that they were unable to welcome him in London and had to receive him in another place to be able to provide security for him and his companions within highly secure and protected areas. "They may get aggressive, and congratulations, you're in World War III", Trump added.

"Now I understand that, but that's the way it was set up", Trump said. The relation between Russian Federation and the Balkan nation soured in the recent times.

Trump also asserted, without evidence, that his campaign had been illegally spied upon by the Federal Bureau of Investigation . Among Democrats, 78 percent disapprove of what Trump said about US intelligence findings, as do 59 percent of independents .

Trump says he has 'full faith' in United States intelligence after Putin summit
Two congressional aides confirmed to Foreign Policy that Pompeo will publicly testify before the committee next Wednesday. He said: 'It's 24 hours too late and in the wrong place'.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will discuss trade with Trump at a meeting on Wednesday. The alliance outlived the Cold War, however, and in the decades since, it has extended membership to a number of former communist states.

After a two-hour meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin with only translators present, Trump announced that he accepted Putin's denials about Russian attempts to use social media to influence the 2016 USA election. Russian Federation would also be unable to resupply Montenegro in a war. Montenegro joined NATO in June 2017 amid opposition by various countries of the organisation. As it happens, Article 5 has only been ratified once - after the 9/11 attacks - in NATO's history. This is in many ways a good deal for Montenegro, which has a standing army of just a couple thousand people and is roughly the size of CT.

The congressman also dismissed a recent Washington Post report that officials are "purging" employees at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs who are deemed disloyal to the president and his policies on veterans. ME is six times as big as Montenegro and has had a partnership with the country since 2006. Thus, troops from Poland, Estonia and numerous other newer North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nations join those of the U.S., U.K., Germany and others in Afghanistan. But there was a great outcry in every part of the United States about how Trump had "thrown America under the bus", as one Fox News reporter put it.

NATO's collective defense clause has been activated only once in the alliance's almost 70-year history - following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the U.S. "Get ready, Russia, because (American missiles) will be coming, nice and new and smart!" he tweeted over a transient crisis in Syria three months ago. And as all three know quite well, Vladimir Putin's Russian Federation has a habit of invading its neighbors.

"I think the president and the intelligence community already had a strained relationship going into the Helsinki summit, and the comments that President Trump made during the press conference between himself and President Putin probably did not do much to help that", Continetti said.

Trump can further argue that Germany's actions beyond its inadequate defense spending have necessitated this move. "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".
