Donald Trump hits back at world leaders who appeared to mock him in video
Trump described Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as "two-faced".
Donald Trump has hit back at Justin Trudeau after footage emerged that appeared to show him and other world leaders mocking him.
Videos surfaced online of Trudeau, Boris Johnson, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and French President Emmanuel Macron seemingly mocking Trump at Buckingham Palace.
The video shows Johnson ask Trudeau "is that why you were late?", to which Trudeau responded "He was late because he takes a ... 40-minute press conference at the top."
"You just watched his team's jaws drop to the floor," Trudeau also appears to say in the conversation, although it is unclear who they are referring to at any point.

But Trump has seemingly assumed the comments were made about him, responding by saying that Trudeau is "two-faced".
When asked by a reporter if he'd seen the video of Trudeau talking about him, he said: "He's two-faced... I find him to be a very nice guy but you know the truth is that I called him out the fact that he's not paying 2% and I can see he's not very happy about it.
"He's not paying 2% and he should be paying 2%. Canada - they have money."
Meanwhile, Johnson was asked if he did not take Trump seriously, to which he replied: "No, that's complete nonsense. I don't know where that's come from."
