Montenegro – “Very Aggressive People” ???
Montenegro has been lobbying hard to join the European Union since 2008. Russia is opposed to Montenegro joining the EU. Clearly Donald Trump doesn’t want Montenegro to join the EU either. In May of 2017, Trump was filmed shoving the Prime Minister of Montenegro in front of NATO members. In July of 2018 Trump said the US wouldn’t ever protect Montenegrins because they are “very aggressive people”. If you visit Montenegro, you will see that nothing could be further from the truth. Trump seems to be on message with Russia in preventing Montenegro from joining the European Union.
