Trump blasts 'two-faced' Trudeau over candid video at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation reception

Trump blasts 'two-faced' Trudeau over candid video at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation reception

But it's widely speculated - and Trump's recent comments appear to confirm - that Trudeau and the other world leaders were discussing the USA president's 53-minute press conference with NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg.

Trump insisted his accommodation with Erdoğan has helped USA interests, even as it has cost the lives and territory of America's longtime allies against Islamic State, the Kurds, and helped Russian Federation bolster its power and influence in the region.

"I think they're extremely uncomfortable around our President because he comes over there and dominates the show", Peek said.

Later, during a working lunch with leaders of countries meeting the two-per-cent spending target, a White House pool reporter noted Trump told one attendee it "was amusing when I said that guy was two-faced", referring to Trudeau. Canada does not meet NATO's target for member countries to spend two per cent of their gross domestic product on defence.

George Conway criticized Trump for being the "laughingstock" of the world after a video surfaced showing world leaders seemingly mocking the president.

A video from a reception at Buckingham Palace appears to show Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron, among others, mocking President Trump, although he is not mentioned by name.

Trump is due to give another news conference alone later today after the 29 North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders hold a full three-hour closed-door summit session.

It should be noted that Trump is never mentioned by name in the video, but Trudeau's comments nearly certainly were in reference to Trump's press conference with Canadian PM earlier that day. But you know, the truth is that I called him out on the fact that he's not paying 2%, and I guess he's not very happy about it.

When asked about the video Wednesday, Trump called Trudeau "two-faced".

"It's Canada. They have money".

Trump branded Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "two-faced" after the remarks captured during a reception in London at Buckingham Palace.

The comments came after US President Donald Trump launched a verbal assault at French President Emmanuel Macron.

"I'm representing the U.S. And he should be paying more than he's paying". He's not paying 2 per cent, and he should be paying 2 per cent.

The leaders of the world's most powerful military alliance clashed over personality and policy on Wednesday as NATO's summit ended with an effort to paper over their sharp divisions. Macron, once a prime flatterer of Trump, was unwilling to back down or play a willing prop when the two met Tuesday, hours after Trump had publicly attacked him. Trump, 73, has now canceled a scheduled press conference, as well as a meeting with Italy's Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, and is flying straight back to the White House. "So we're talking to the European Union.about trade".

Asked on Wednesday if he had heard Trudeau's remarks about him, Trump said: "He's two-faced".
