President Trump has canceled his final press conference at the NATO summit and many believe the abrupt cancelation comes after world leaders were caught on camera mocking the President.
French President Emanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson were the world leaders involved.
According to Fox News:
President Trump slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday as “two-faced” after video surfaced of some of the world’s top leaders at the NATO summit in London appearing to laugh at his expense.
Asked about the video during a bilateral meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump said of Trudeau, “he’s two-faced.”
Trump then abruptly canceled a planned news conference with reporters in London. “When today’s meetings are over, I will be heading back to Washington,” Trump tweeted. “We won’t be doing a press conference at the close of NATO because we did so many over the past two days. Safe travels to all!”
….When today’s meetings are over, I will be heading back to Washington. We won’t be doing a press conference at the close of NATO because we did so many over the past two days. Safe travels to all!

In a video shared by the Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC), Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron are seen with others, including Princess Anne, having a conversation at a reception at the Buckingham Palace about a press conference earlier in the day.
“Well, he’s two-faced. And honestly with Trudeau, he’s a nice guy. I find him to be a very nice guy, but the truth is I called him out on the fact he’s not paying 2%,” said @POTUS after @JustinTrudeau’s candid comments caught on camera. https://t.co/8E8xgJGqVR #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/xtftsBTa6k

President Trump clashed with Macron after he cited a brain death happening at NATO while Trump called him out for not taking ISIS fighters from Europe who were captured in Syria.
