A group of world leaders were caught on camera making jokes about President Donald Trump during the NATO summit in London.
The video, which was first published by the Canadian Broadcasting Group, shows Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron standing in a circle and seemingly lamenting Trump’s question-and-answer sessions at the summit. CNN notes that Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte was also part of the group.
“Is that why you were late?” Johnson asks Macron in the video.
“He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top,” Trudeau says. “Yeah, yeah, yeah. He announced…”
After a few inaudible words, where Macron makes several hand gestures, Trudeau continues:
“You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”

No one mentions @realDonaldTrump by name, but they seem to be discussing his lengthy impromptu press conferences from earlier in the day. (Video: Host Pool) pic.twitter.com/dVgj48rpOP

The group of leaders do not mention Trump by name in the video. However, Macron did have a meeting with Trump on Tuesday, after which he answered several questions.
Trump responded to the video, telling reporters that Trudeau was “two-faced,” according to the Washington Post.
Asked about Trudeau on camera mocking Trump with other foreign leaders, Trump fires back at the Canadian prime minister by telling reporters: “He’s two-faced.”

Trump later added that he was a “nice guy.”
