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.
Well, @realDonaldTrump is right about Trudeau being 2-faced. One face is white and the other is black, but because he’s an “elite” it’s okay for him to do what would be considered “racist” if someone less “sophisticated” had done it. #Hypocrisy https://t.co/DWi5bBa9yl
