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.

    I don’t like Trump but just truth must be said, Foreign fighters are the issue because uneducated poor young men in the region are being LED by the foreign fighters from Europe and they are all employed by European secret services.. many of them when captured here in Iraq had Masonic and cross tattoos on their bodies.. Media and western leaders don’t tell these information to the public, instead they fool the public with bullshit information

    Not True!! The number one problem is Foreign Interference because of Foreign Fighters!! All European Nations should take back their Nationals and undertake due process in their own countries!!

    Macron did not answer the question about taking back EU fighters. And Trump called him out on it. Thank you Mr president for putting euro-trash whet it belongs.
