Trump Calls Out ‘Two-Faced’ Canadian PM Trudeau On NATO Payments


President Donald Trump called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau “two-faced” on Wednesday.

Trump was asked about Trudeau’s comments after video surfaced of the Canadian leader speaking with various foreign leaders and commenting on the length of Trump’s press conference. The video was recorded at a Buckingham Palace event during the NATO summit in London. 

Trump responded to a reporter’s question regarding the video during a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday.

“Well, he's two-faced,” the president said. “With Trudeau he’s a nice guy, I find him to be a very nice guy.”  Trump then added that Trudeau was likely unhappy that he was called out for not spending 2 percent of the country’s GDP for NATO defense as agreed to.

“I called him out on that, and I'm sure he wasn't happy about it, but that's the way it is,” Trump said. 

“He’s not paying two percent and he should be paying two percent. It’s Canada –they have money.”
