Donald Trump gives North Atlantic Treaty Organisation new reason to be nervous: defending Montenegro

After Helsinki, Trump boasts of reinforcing NATO

Mr Trump has long voiced his concerns over America's role in the 29-country alliance, largely because he reckons it's unfair that the United States contributes the most money to it.

Donald Trump says Montenegro could be the cause of World War III. "I've asked the same question".

"They are going to up it to levels like they have never though it before", he said.

Earlier Thursday, Trump called out US allies on Twitter as he attended a second day of meetings with leaders of the military alliance.

He said that while Russians have used similar interference tactics under other presidents, Trump's administration has taken steps to address the threat.

According to Merkel, Europe can not rely anymore on the United States to impose order on the world.

In a rebuke to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, he also called Germany a "captive" of Moscow because, he said, Berlin supported a Baltic Sea gas pipeline from Russian Federation. We are making friendships, and we have not lost any of them.

Senators have requested the notes of the U-S translator in the meeting, the only American besides Trump to take part.

Now, let's pick this all apart and try to make sense of it. Trump's betrayal of the American intelligence services was a natural and necessary part of his campaign to discredit them, because he fears that they have or will discover evidence that links him to the Russian intervention in the USA election.

From Jail, Pakistan's Ex-PM Sharif Appeals His Sentence
State Department in a statement strongly condemned this week's attacks on political candidates and their supporters in Pakistan. On July 6, Judge Bashir had sentenced Nawaz, Maryam, and Safdar in the Avenfield reference.

"Yes, absolutely I would be committed to Article 5", he said at the time.

"I just want to remind all the American public opinion and President Trump that Montenegro was an ally with American soldiers in two wars, in the first world war and the second world war", former parliament speaker Ranko Krivokapic told The Associated Press.

It was the most recent in a series of demands and insults that critics fear will undermine the decades-old alliance, coming days before Trump sits down with Putin at the conclusion of his closely watched European trip. It was invoked once - after the strikes against the United States on 9/11.

During Trump's recent trips, nearly no announcement of cooperation and agreement was made by either European or American leaders. Thank you for calling me.

Amid the tumult, British Prime Minister Theresa May, whose government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union, sounded a call for solidarity among allies.

His argument, crudely put, is this: Why should we risk a massive fight with this huge rival, just because some random little country that's barely pulling its weight couldn't keep its mouth shut?

On meeting Queen Elizabeth, "King" Trump wouldn't let the 92-year-old monarch walk ahead of him. Montenegro, which means "Black Mountain", does boast of a heroic warring tradition forged over centuries of conquest and contemporary conflicts in the troubled Balkans. Although he tried to put pressure on other parties to pay the US' military expenses on the territory of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, he was faced with serious opposition and protests that made the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit tense. "You know Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people".

He also said meeting the queen would be an experience Trump "will really cherish".
