Earlier today, Xeni posted the video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Princess Anne yukking it up about what a twerp Trump is. Trump has left the NATO summit early, reports The Independent, after describing Trudeau as "two-faced" and cancelling a press event.
Donald Trump has reacted furiously to footage of world leaders apparently making fun of him, calling Justin Trudeau "two-faced" then cancelling a press conference and cutting short his attendance at a Nato summit.
The US president was asked whether he had seen the clip in which his international counterparts appeared to joke about his explosive press conference with Emmanuel Macron.
"You just watched his team's jaws drop to the floor!" Mr Trudeau apparently said of Mr Trump.
NBC News elaborates:
NBC News had not confirmed whom Trudeau was speaking about, although earlier in the day, Trump was involved in a 38-minute press event alongside Macron. Prior to that, the president spoke alongside NATO Sec. Gen. Jens Stoltenberg for about 53 minutes.
Macron and Johnson's offices declined to comment on the video, and Canadian officials were not immediately available for a response.
"Well, he's two-faced," Trump said of Trudeau alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday. "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."
