Conservatives skewer Trudeau after Trump calls him ‘two-faced’

Conservatives took jabs at Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after President Trump called him “two-faced,” with many drawing attention the Canadian leader’s blackface scandal earlier this year.

Trump’s remarks came in response to a viral video showing Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson talking at the NATO summit about Trump’s tardiness to bilateral meetings.

“He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top,” Trudeau said without naming Trump, in what he appeared to believe was a private conversation. “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”

Trump responded to the video on Wednesday, calling Trudeau “two-faced.”

Trump supporters, including former GOP presidential candidates Herman Cain and Mike Huckabee, cheered the response while zeroing in on Trudeau. 

Trump is scheduled to return to Washington on Wednesday evening.
