Trump Caught on Hot Mic: ‘That Was Funny When I Said That Guy Was Two-Faced’
President Donald Trump has been caught on a hot mic praising himself for calling Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau ‘two-faced’ following a video of Trudeau apparently mocking Trump while talking to other world leaders at a Buckingham Palace reception.
“That was funny when I said that guy was two-faced,” Trump said, according to pool reporters who heard him.

Trump’s comments are particularly appropriate considering his original remark about Trudeau being ‘two-faced’ was a reaction to another hot mic moment. The original video also featured other dignitaries apparently talking about Trump but their words were inaudible. This included French President Emmanuel Macron and the UK’s Princess Anne.
Trump caught on hot mic talking about Trudeau and his scrapping of news conf per pool reporter @betsy_klein – “Oh, and then you know what they'll say. He didn't do a press conference. He didn't do a press conference. That was funny when I said the guy's two-faced, you know that.”

Trudeau had apparently joked that Trump’s staff had their jaws on the floor. Trump reacted to the video by cancelling a press conference and plans to leave the NATO summit early.
