President Trump, during his visit to NATO headquarters in Brussels on Thursday, appeared to shove the prime minister of Montenegro so he could be at the front of a group of world leaders.
Trump is seen in a video of the group, as they prepared to enter the body’s headquarters, walking in the back of the pack, before attempting to extend his hand to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, who is at the front of the group.
But in doing so, Trump uses his left hand to push back Duško Markovic, the prime minister of Montenegro, and walks in front of him.
Trump never ends up shaking Stoltenberg’s hand.
Instead, now at the front of the group, next to Stoltenberg, Trump merely looks up and tugs on the lapels of his jacket.
A closer look at the video will show that the only leader who tried to ‘man up’ or take Trump to task over his child-like behavior, was Lithuania’s president Dalia Grybauskaite. One would wonder why Dalia, a female, would have the guts to face Trump! Well, the international press calls her the “Lithuanian Iron Lady” for her black belt in karate.
So Trump better not mess with Dalia!
Moments later, in his first address as President to the NATO leaders, Trump, who frequently criticized NATO during the campaign, proceeded to lecture his fellow world leaders over how much they pay into the international body, even suggesting he was angry with the body’s decision to construct a new headquarters.
