Trump Calls Canada’s Trudeau “Two Faced” After Hot Mic Video Of World Leaders Leaks
President Trump took a shot at Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after a video of world leaders seemingly mocking the president was leaked.
During a bilateral meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump said of Trudeau, “he’s two faced.”
In a video that was shared by the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company) Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron are seen talking with one another at Buckingham palace.
At one point in the conversation Macron was asked about his press conference with Trump.
“Is that why you were late?” Boris asked Macron.
“He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top — ‘Oh, ya, ya ya,'” Trudeau said, later adding, “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”

Earlier that day Trump had mocked Macron for not accepting any of the ISIS fighters who had left Europe for Syria. Fox News reports:
Earlier, Macron and Trump clashed over ISIS fighters.
“I have not spoken to the president about that — would you like some nice ISIS fighters?” he asked Macron, when asked about ISIS fighters from Europe captured in Syria. “I can give them to you, you can take every one you want.”
After Macron’s answer, in which he urged Trump to “be serious” and called for a broader push against ISIS overall, Trump took another swipe.
“This is why he’s a great politician, because that’s one of the greatest non-answers I’ve ever heard,” Trump joked.
It’s all fun and games for these people until they need the United States to bail them out of a World War… Maybe next time we should just let Russia handle it.
