Hmmm, funny you should mention. Of course, like any stereotype, it can be wildly off. But the “stoic mountain warrior” thing is kind of a part of the national identity / value system, whatever you call it. I think that’s where Trump was coming from. I am surprised that he knew that stereotype, he must have gotten cliff-notes from Melania. He said “They are very very strong people. They are aggressive people”.
Here is a fun fact. Montenegro is a tiny nation. In ex-YU, they were never more than 3-4% of the total population. Yet, in the WWII, one third of the commanders in partisan forces were Montenegrins. Their četnik units too were strong, relative to the size of the nation.
