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".
