North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders including Trudeau, Macron caught mocking Trump on camera

  • Britain's Princess Anne talks to Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other NATO leaders at Buckingham Palace

PM Justin Trudeau, France's Emmanuel Macron, UK PM Boris Johnson and other VIPs shared a few words at a Buckingham Palace reception Tuesday - and seemed to be talking about U.S. President Donald Trump's lengthy impromptu press conferences earlier in the day.

Trump did not appear to view the videotaped conversation the same way. "Honestly, with Trudeau, he's a nice guy". The poll, commissioned by German news agency DPA, suggests the majority of the German public are in favour of reducing its reliance on USA military.

"I find him to be a very nice guy but you know the truth is that I called him out over the fact that he's not paying 2 percent and I can see he's not very happy about it", Trump said at a news conference alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"He should be paying more than he's paying".

On Tuesday, Mr. Trump who has carried on a years-long campaign to get NATO's other members to pay more for their own defence, said during a bilateral meeting with Mr. Trudeau that Canada was "slightly delinquent" for not meeting the alliance's military spending target of 2 per cent of gross domestic product. And he understands it. "I was happy to take part in it but it was certainly notable". "But that's the way it is".

In footage edited by CBC, Mr. Johnson asks Mr. Macron: "Is that why you were late?" before Mr. Trudeau cuts in: "He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top", Mr. Trudeau said, laughing between sips of a beer.

A five-minute press briefing on Tuesday morning with the Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the United States ambassador's residence in London turned into an nearly hour-long frenzied press conference.

TikTok Sued for Harvesting and sending user data to China
Hong says she downloaded TikTok in either March or April, but never knowingly created an account. Such data included biometric information and the websites she visited on her phone.

The video of Trudeau, who was speaking to Johnson, Macron, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Princess Anne, quickly went viral after it was released and was reported on by worldwide media outlets, including the New York Times, Fox News and the BBC.

The leaders do not use Trump's name, but the USA president took dozens of questions from journalists on Tuesday during impromptu news conferences at the starts of his individual meetings with Macron, Trudeau and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

Despite Trudeau's levity when pressed on the viral video, the initial gossiping and Trump's fiery reaction comes as Canada and the US are working to finalize a trade deal - something that could be impacted by a change in diplomatic relations.

"I give a lot of credit to Turkey for that, ceasefire is holding very much", he said.

The surprisingly gentle rebuke - at least by Trump's standards - follows concerns Trudeau's comments could result in a backlash against Canada from the president, who only this week blasted French President Emmanuel Macron.

The gossiping and name-calling does come in stark contrast to the mood between the two world leaders yesterday, when Trump said of Trudeau that it was "an honour to be with a friend", and touted their "very good relationship".
