  • After Helsinki, Trump boasts of reinforcing NATO

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.

"Arizona Sen. McCain, in a tweet on Wednesday, chastised the president for his remarks, saying that "#Putin will do anything to shatter the transatlantic alliance" in a tweet that pointed to an editorial he wrote about the Montenegro coup plot that was first published a year ago in USA Today. Montenegro, a former Yugoslav republic like Slovenia, the home country of USA first lady Melania Trump, is known for its long Adriatic Sea beaches.

"But that's the way it was set up", Trump continued, apparently referring to Article 5.

About 84 percent of respondents said Trump's comments about Russian Federation controlling Germany were "completely absurd", according to the poll which surveyed 1,004 Germans.

Trump went on to say that Montenegro, a small Balkan country on the Adriatic Sea, could somehow be the instigator of conflict, as opposed to, say, a country like Russian Federation. "And I hope that Montenegro was not part of (the) Helsinki talks".

"Right. By the way, they are very strong people", he said of the Balkan country. They have very aggressive people. "They may get aggressive, and congratulations, you're in World War III", Trump added.

"I have to tell you that the atmosphere last night at dinner was very open, was very constructive and it was very positive", Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, the president of Croatia, told reporters.

SHAPIRO: How did you react to this exchange?

"Therefore, the friendship and the alliance of Montenegro and the United States of America is strong and permanent", Markovic's government said in its statement Thursday.

Based on last year's data, the USA contributes more to the organisation than any other country, at 3.5 per cent of its GDP. Washington wants them to follow the USA policies and it seems they have to endure and accept this humiliating manners, even at the cost of losing independence.

Trump should be "investing in greater election security and having the Congress work with state governments to pass laws to establish even a basic level of cybersecurity protection and election protection for our voting systems", he said.

"Regardless of how much bad press Trump receives for his foreign policies, these do not seem to have had any real effect on his popularity".

"To keep pace with the rapidly changing threat landscape, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation adopted an enhanced policy and action plan on cyber defence, endorsed by Allies at the Wales Summit in September 2014", the document reads.

DARMANOVIC:.As unconditional and rock-solid.

Ms Bishop agreed that Mr Trump had a "valid point" on defence spending She said: "The United States makes a very valid point".

DARMANOVIC: Probably he referred to our history.

Woody Johnson, the USA ambassador to the United Kingdom, dismissed the significance of the protests, telling Fox News that one of the reasons the two countries are so close "is because we have the freedoms that we've all fought for". He even welcomed and supported France's exit from the European Union, and encouraged the French people to join the supporters of Frexit.

SHAPIRO: Well, then it sounds like he wasn't just choosing any country at random, that he actually does have something specific in mind. Its past ties to Russian Federation, with whom Montenegro shared a predominantly Slavic and Orthodox Christian culture, were so strong that its leaders were said to have declared a war on Japan in 1904 just to support Russian Federation. So I believe he is referring to our struggle for freedom, to our our anti-fascism.

He didn't actually say either of those things last week (although he has said them both in the past).

"I don't know what to say, I think this is really stupid", another local told CNN. There will be maybe more debates about finance. There are debates even among friends. There will be research for better model.

SHAPIRO: Foreign Minister Srdjan Darmanovic of Montenegro speaking with us from the capital, Podgorica.
