President Trump is slamming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as "two-faced" in response to a viral video, while at the same time calling him a "very nice guy."
Trump on Wednesday responded to a video that emerged appearing to show Trudeau mocking Trump to other world leaders, not mentioning his name but laughing at his press conference earlier in the day, with Trudeau saying, "You just watched his team's jaws drop to the floor."
"Well, he's two-faced," Trump said of Trudeau when asked about the video, calling him a "nice guy" but suggesting he's "not very happy" because "I called him out on the fact that he's not paying two percent." Trump had at a meeting with Trudeau said Canada is "slightly delinquent" for not meeting the NATO defense spending target of two percent gross domestic target, The Hill reports.
Trump also suggested Wednesday he may cancel a planned press conference for later in the day, saying, "I think we've done plenty of press conferences." Brendan Morrow
