‘That was funny’: Trump caught on mic laughing about Trudeau jibe

Donald Trump has been overheard hailing his “funny” comment about “two-faced” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

At a Buckingham Palace reception for NATO leaders on Tuesday night, Mr Trudeau was caught on camera apparently gossiping about the US president.

Mr Trump gave his cutting assessment the day after his Canadian counterpart was seen talking to French president Emmanuel Macron about an unnamed associate during the reception to welcome leaders to the NATO summit in London.

Trump calls Canada’s PM ‘two-faced’

The US president branded Mr Trudeau “two-faced” and suggested the Canadian prime minister was not impressed with him pointing out Canada is not paying its promised 2% of GDP on defence.

“I find him to be a very nice guy but you know the truth is that I called him out the fact that he’s not paying 2% and I can see he’s not very happy about it,” he said.
