But Trump was caught on tape doing exactly that and still went on with FOX News' Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night where he questioned Montenegro's value to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance and insulted its citizens by calling them "very aggressive people" who might somehow get the US involved in a third World War.

In an interview with Fox News, Trump also called into question Nato's founding principle. "Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people". A 2016 coup attempt aimed to kill Montenegro's prime minister and put an alleged pro-Kremlin party in power.

Montenegro reportedly pledged more troops to help fight the US's longest war in Afghanistan.

Carlson said he read some of the responses from critics of the summit, but added that Trump was "not particularly moved by them".

"You know, Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people... they might get aggressive, and congratulations, you're in World War Three", he added. "But that's the way it was set up".

"He thinks that Russian Federation is not the primary threat to the U.S. - China is", Carlson said, adding that Trump found it "absurd to pass up the chance" to be closer to Russian Federation for the sake of worldwide relations. Another 18 percent said they were not sure if the United States had to uphold those commitments.

The president replied that he's asked the same question. "Both of my parents are from the European Union, despite the fact they don't treat us well on trade". But his comments garnered widespread around given Trump's recent and controversial bonhomie towards Russian President Vladimir Putin. The organization calls for member nations to come to the aid of any ally that is attacked.

The Prime Minister appeared to downplay Trump's comments Wednesday while responding to questions from parliamentarians.

"I don't quite understand the notion that the Montenegrins are so aggressive and with their two thousand men military that are likely to start World War III". Before joining NATO, Montenegro assisted in Afghanistan's reconstruction efforts for almost eight years.
