NBC News reports:
President Donald Trump blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as “two-faced” on Wednesday after Trudeau was caught on an open mic with other world leaders discussing the NATO summit in London and making what may have been references to Trump.
‘Well, he’s two-faced,” Trump said of Trudeau alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday. “And honestly with Trudeau he’s a nice guy, but the truth is I called him out on the fact he’s not paying 2 percent (in funding NATO) and I guess he’s not happy about it.”
Trump responds to video of Trudeau poking fun at him behind his back: “Well, he’s two-faced. And with Trudeau, he’s a nice guy. I find him to be a nice guy, but the truth is, I called him out on the fact that he’s not paying 2%, and I guess he’s not very happy about it.”

ICYMI, a hot mic picked up Canadian PM Justin Trudeau & others at NATO apparently talking about Pres Trump’s lateness, extended press conferences & Trump’s team’s jaws dropping in response to Trump’s comments at NATO. And now, Trump seems to have cancelled his 10:30 a.m. presser. https://t.co/HeHTZqEP2L
