Trump: Montenegro's 'aggressive people' could start WWIII

President Donald Trump is taking another jab at NATO, questioning whether the alliance’s shared defense pact may possibly let tiny Montenegro’s “very aggressive individuals” start World War III.

Trump commented in an interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News Channel that aired Tuesday night. The interview was carried out Monday after the Helsinki summit.

Trump and Carlson were going over NATO when the Fox News host questioned why his boy should have to safeguard Montenegro if it’s attacked. Russia was bugged when Montenegro joined NATO in 2017, and relations in between the 2 countries have actually been wintry.

The president replied that he’s asked the exact same concern. Montenegro “may get aggressive and congratulations, you’re in World War III,” Trump stated.

Trump is a longstanding skeptic of NATO. A situation where tensions over Montenegro would activate nuclear war seems not likely.
