President Donald Trump is under fire for appearing to shove Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic aside to get to the front of a group of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) leaders.
While gathering at NATO’s new headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday, a group of members are seen walking together to get to a meeting. From behind, Trump emerges pushes Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic aside, stepping in front of him. The president then smugly straightens in his jacket.
In his first address as president to the NATO leaders minutes later, the frequent critic of NATO during his campaign continued to make his feelings about the organization known, chiding others for not meeting their financial commitments.
