Trump Caught on Hot Mic Boasting About Trashing Justin Trudeau

President Donald Trump was in London for a summit with NATO allies that turned contentious when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau got caught in a video apparently mocking the president.

In the video, which was posted by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Trudeau is seen with French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Trudeau says, apparently of Trump’s staffers, “you just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”

Trump — who has had a hot and cold relationship with Trudeau — hit back at the Canadian leader during a press conference on Wednesday. When asked about the video, Trump said “he’s two-faced.”

Trump added “and honestly with Trudeau, he’s a nice guy, I find him to be a very nice guy but, you know, the truth is that I called him out on the fact that he’s not paying 2% and I guess he’s not very happy about it.”

The president has frequently complained that some of our NATO allies are not spending 2% of their GDP on defense, which Trump complains is tantamount to the other nations taking advantage of the United States. After Russia invaded Ukraine, the NATO countries pledged to meet the 2% mark by 2024 but few have hit that mark.

Soon after he told the press that Trudeau was “two-faced”, Trump was caught on a hot mic, saying “that was funny when I said that guy’s two-faced.”

It’s no surprise that Trudeau often bristles with Trump. The Canadian prime minister represents the liberal party in Canada and even earned the endorsement of Barack Obama before his recent election.

Trudeau has become a sort of foil for Trump — former White House aide Anthony Scaramucci even claimed that Trump is “very intimidated by Justin Trudeau,” saying Trudeau is “a good looking, smart kid and President Trump is like this orange fat blob.”

Most of Canada doesn’t like Trudeau, so I think he should be more worried about that then his frat boy antics.

Why the Scaramucci quote? He’s old old irrelevant news. Perhaps Alex Thomas should take his story writing to CNN.

So what? Trudeau has no love for Trump either. Maybe consider building a Wall on the Northern border.
