Trump Calls Justin Trudeau

President Trump claims that Justin Trudeau is “two-faced” after a joke he made surfaced on social media. On Tuesday, Dec. 3, U.S. president Donald Trump and Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau held a press conference during the NATO summit which is currently being held in the UK. Trump used that opportunity to talk about his winning the 2016 election. He also mentioned his “perfect” phone call with the president of the Ukraine. He also bragged about how the U.S. has “actually advanced very far on 5G” technology. He rambled for almost 53 minutes, causing some of the leaders to be late to their next meeting.

It’s any wonder how Trudeau felt about sitting through Trump’s rants. Well, some people got to find out. Later that day, Trudeau was spotted speaking to U.K. prime minister Boris Johnson, French president Emmanuel Macron, Dutch prime minster Mark Rutte, and Princess Anne at Buckingham Palace. In a short video that circulated on social media, Trudeau is heard joking about Trump’s lateness, without outwardly mentioning his name.

In the 25-second clip, Johnson, a known Trump supporter, is overheard asking Trudeau, “Is that why you were late?” Trudeau jokingly responded, “He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top.” Not only did Trump interrupt his press conference, but he almost spent an hour rambling with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.  Then Trudeau was overheard saying, “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.” Even Boris Johnson was laughing at Trump’s expense.

Trudeau was making a remark about Trump’s question and answer session with reporters on Tuesday. It’s as if Trump turned it into his own private press conference. In another part of the video, Trudeau mentioned Trump’s announcement that next year’s G-7 summit will take place at the presidential retreat at Camp David. Trump wanted to host the event at his Miami-area resort. Macron is heard speaking to Trudeau, but his comments are inaudible.

Trump caught wind of Trudeau’s comments and didn’t find them too funny. According to Maggie Haberman, Trump “hates the thought of anyone laughing at him.” Trump is the type of person who thinks  only he can talk poorly of others. He has a history of calling Democrats “human scum” and his former employees “dumb as a rock.” Trump also called the mayor of San Juan “crazed and incompetent,” according to Vanity Fair. In addition, Trump’s trade adviser revealed on Fox News that Trudeau is going to spend his afterlife in hell.

Trump has since responded to Trudeau’s comments. He told reporters in a separate press conference that he thinks the Canadian prime minister is a “two-faced” person. Trump would rather if Trudeau called him a name to his face. Or, he would prefer that Trudeau would just say something cruel to his face.

“Well, he’s two-faced,” Trump said. “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%, and I guess he’s not very happy about it.”

Trump followed up on that by cancelling a scheduled press conference. He revealed on Twitter that he was “heading back to Washington” early on Wednesday. Trump’s pettiness could find him in a tariff war with Canada. However, Trudeau remains unphased. He confirmed to reporters on Wednesday that he was talking about Trump. But he claims it was all in good jest even if Trump doesn’t see it that way.

“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,” Trudeau said. “I've had a number of good conversations with the President over the course of this day and yesterday.”

Trudeau reassured everyone that “the relationship between Canada and the United States is extremely strong, and I have a very good relationship with President Trump and his team.” Last year, Trump called Trudeau “meek and mild” after the prime minster attacked the president’s claims about trade negotiations between the two countries. Johnson tried to distance himself from the video and has since dismissed reporters’ questions about the video that’s gone viral. But he clearly looked like he was enjoying the conversation that took place, reports Newsweek.

“That’s complete nonsense,” Johnson said. “I really don’t know what is being referred to there.”

The viral video sure looked like Justin Trudeau and the other world leaders were gossiping about Trump. Only time will tell if Canada’s relationship with the United States will be strained because of the ongoing beef between Trudeau and Trump.
