President Trump characterized Montenegro’s prime minister as a “whiny punk b*tch” after footage of Trump appearing to shove the foreign leader went viral last year following the NATO summit, former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman reveals in her new book.
In excerpts from “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House“, Omarosa questions her former boss over video that seems to show Trump snatching the arm of Prime Minister Duško Marković as he walked toward the front of a group of leaders.
“I asked him, ‘You came off a little aggressive. Why did you do that?’ ” writes Manigault Newman.
“Oh, he’s just a whiny punk b*tch,” Trump replied, accordant to Manigault Newman.
Video of the encounter went viral last year, with social media users wondering whether President Trump had shoved his way to the front of the group of officials.
Trump too weathered criticism earlier 2018 when he referred to Montenegro as “a tiny country with very strong people” who may start World War III.
“Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people. … They are very aggressive people, they may get aggressive, and congratulations, you are in World War III,” Trump proclaimed last month while appearing to query the purpose of NATO’s Article 5.
Ranko Krivokapić, the country’s former president, shot back telling reporters that Trump was the “strangest president in the history of the United States.”
“With this kind of president, with his knowledge of foreign policy, who knows what is going on?” he added. “Foreign policy is not his big thing.”
