This is embarrassing.
Trump was asked about the video while taking questions from reporters ahead of a meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany.
“Well, he’s two-faced,” the president said. After a long pause, he added, “He’s a nice guy. I find him to be a very nice guy.”
Trump said the comments had stemmed from his pressuring Mr. Trudeau to increase Canada’s military spending to 2 percent of its economic output. (They weren’t)
Caught on tape as pool was ushered out, @POTUS saying “That was funny when I said the guy is two-faced”, referring to his comment about @JustinTrudeau who was caught gossiping about Trump with @EmmanuelMacron and @BorisJohnson— Patsy Widakuswara (@pwidakuswara) December 4, 2019
Butthurt, the president is coming home…
….When today’s meetings are over, I will be heading back to Washington. We won’t be doing a press conference at the close of NATO because we did so many over the past two days. Safe travels to all!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2019
After video surfaced that appeared to show the French, Canadian and British leaders mocking his long q&a sessions yesterday, Trump says his scheduled press conference is off and he’ll go directly to Washington after his meetings instead.— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) December 4, 2019
