President Donald Trump has slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as “two-faced” after a video surfaced of Trudeau seeming to mock Trump behind his back to other world leaders.
Asked about Trudeau being caught on camera criticizing him, Trump responded, “Well, he’s two-faced.”
“And honestly, with Trudeau, he’s a nice guy,” the president continued. “I find him to be a very nice guy but the truth is I called him out on the fact that he’s not paying two percent [to NATO] and I guess he’s not very happy about it … Look, I’m representing the United States and he understands that.”
The video of Trudeau, which was originally shared by the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC), showed Trudeau speaking with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron, among others, and poking fun at Trump for giving an impromptu press conference earlier in the day. The Trudeau conversation took place at Buckingham Palace in London and the world leaders are gathered for the NATO summit.
“Is that why you were late?” Johnson is heard saying to Macron in the video, presumably in reference to Trump’s press conference.
“He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top — ‘Oh, ya, ya ya,'” Trudeau says, suspiciously keeping his voice low as if he knows he’s gossiping.
He later says, “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”
While President Trump is not specifically named, many assume Trudeau is referring to him.

Trump also announced he was cutting his time at the summit short, canceling an afternoon press conference he’d previously planned on conducting.
President Trump called Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “two faced” after seeing some videos that appear to show Trudeau mocking Trump behind his back. That’s right. Trump called the guy who likes to dress in blackface two faced. ???

In addition to being “Blackfaced”, Justin Trudeau is also “Two faced”.

Trudeau mocks Trump while he’s out of the room like an annoying toddler in kindergarten.
He behaves very differently when Trump is there, acting as if he is shy over an unrequited crush.pic.twitter.com/ixGdYMg70G

What it clearly shows is that President @realDonaldTrump is without a doubt the biggest energy there and is living rent free in their heads.
