Trump and Macron Clash at NATO

Trump and Macron are back at each other's throats — again.

Bromance to Frenemies?

President Trump slammed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau 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.” But it was the length of Trump’s interactions with the press that appeared to be the source of Trudeau’s riff. 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!"

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. Trump had made an impromptu conference and weighed in on the ongoing impeachment inquiry as well as the scorching exchange he had with Macron over France not taking back any ISIS fighters. The video went viral on social media, many assuming the world leaders were talking about Trump.

Beforehand, Macron and Trump clashed over ISIS fighters. “I have not spoken to the president about that — would you like some nice ISIS fighters?” he asked Macron, when asked about ISIS fighters from Europe captured in Syria. “I can give them to you, you can take everyone you want.” After Macron’s answer, in which he urged Trump to “be serious” and called for a broader push against ISIS overall, Trump took another swipe. “This is why he’s a great politician, because that’s one of the greatest non-answers I’ve ever heard,” Trump joked.

    What will the world do with the interned terrorist fighter population? We have refugees that need care while those guys are in lockup. Tough questions.

    It's a pretty sad time in America when the president of the United States and the president of France get into an argument and you agree with the French President.

    Trump has no idea what he's talking about. He tries to act like he does but has no idea.
