Trump reacts to leaked video of world leaders mocking him – Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is two-faced
Donald Trump is currently the number one trending topic on World Twitter at the moment partly due to the events that have happened at the NATO summit that just concluded in London.
On Wednesday a video leaked on the internet showing world leaders Justin Trudeau, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron seemingly mock US president Donald Trump after Macron appeared late for a meeting.
The world leaders didn’t know their hot mic was on and in his closing news conference Wednesday night, Trudeau confirmed that he had been talking about Trump, and said the moment that made “his team’s jaws drop” was when the president announced the location for next year’s Group of Seven summit at Camp David.
“Last night I made a reference to the fact that there was an unscheduled press conference before my meeting with President Trump and I was happy to take part of it but it was certainly notable, and I’ve had a number of good conversations with the president over the course of this day and yesterday,” Trudeau said.
Trump has since reacted to the video calling Canada’s Prime Minister a ‘two-faced’ person and said he was only frank when he said countries weren’t paying their due defence payments to NATO.
“Well, he’s two-faced,” Trump said of Trudeau .
“And honestly with Trudeau he’s a nice guy, but the truth is I called him out on the fact he’s not paying 2 percent (in military spending) and I guess he’s not happy about it.”
Trump later canceled his remaining press conference and said he’ll be heading to Washington.
“When today’s meetings are over, I will be heading back to Washington,” Trump tweeted.
“We won’t be doing a press conference at the close of NATO because we did so many over the past two days. Safe travels to all!”
