Now, social media is mocking Trump for it even more!

Judging by the clip, it looks like the Donald is not very liked in that circle but he also did not hesitate to clap back, as always.

Trudeau was picked up by microphones at a Buckingham Palace reception for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders on Tuesday evening apparently laughing about an impromptu press conference Trump did earlier.

"Let me thank you for the leadership you show on the issue of defense spending because it is very important that we all contribute more to our shared security, and it is really having an impact because, as you said, allies are now spending more on defense".

Trudeau also said: "You just watched his team's jaws drop to the floor".

He does not mention what exactly he'd said that caused such a reaction but the whole group was well aware since they all laughed, including Princess Anne.

Justin Trudeau and Donald Trump have a terse relationship.

"Last night, I made a reference to the fact that there was an unscheduled press conference before my meeting with President Trump and I was happy to take part in it, but it was certainly notable", the prime minister said during a news conference. "And then you know what they'll say?" he asked, in the accidentally recorded aside "'He didn't do a press conference!

"There are both adult and young animals, including cubs of different ages with their moms", WWF quoted Minenko as saying. Polar bears regularly visit areas inhabited by humans in Arctic Russia to search for food, often in rubbish tips.


Asked later about the video during a bilateral meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump said of Trudeau, "He's two-faced".

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg made no reference to Trudeau's exchange as he formally ended the summit, in which members reiterated the alliance's founding principle that an attack on one is an attack on all and recommitted to spending more on defence.

The daily Presidential Tracking Poll by the Rasmussen Reports finds that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approved of President Trump's job performance as of Thursday, up from 49% on Wednesday, and reached the highest level since September 24.

Earlier, Trump sat down with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as European leaders, led by Macron, pushed the alliance to get tough on Turkey after its October invasion of Syria and its purchase of Russian surface-to-air missiles.

The president's approval rating picked up one day after the Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee began its impeachment inquiry hearing into the president. Don't be surprised if there is a rally scheduled in the near future that has a warm welcome and a platform for President Trump to fire back at Trudeau, Boris Johnson, and others.

"The world is laughing at President Trump", the former vice-president tweeted.

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland, speaking on CTV on Thursday, was hesitant to say that relations had been damaged at the summit.

First, more than any president since Ronald Reagan, the Trump presidency represents American values and American interests.
