"Throughout the trip he looked uncomfortable and isolated, others looked surprised or distant", presidential historian Julian Zelizer of Princeton wrote in an email.
But Mr Markovic, Montenegro's leader who was pushed out of the way, took the high ground, dismissing claims that Mr Trump's behaviour was insulting.
