Trump Calls Trudeau 'Two-Faced' and Leaves NATO Summit Early After Video of World Leaders Mocking Him Leaks

CNN



President Donald Trump is always eager to insult his perceived rivals, often with degrading nicknames, indiscriminate of party.

These past few days in London at a NATO summit were no different. He called House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), who isn't present at the summit, a "a maniac," "a deranged human being," and "a very sick man" who "lies."

Trump is proving once again, however, that he can't take what he dishes out.


Video leaked of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaking to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte apparently gossiping about Trump's tense press conference with Macron.

Watch below.

Though much of the video is inaudible, Trudeau noted Trump's rambling press conference with Macron and recalled watching "his team's jaws just drop to the floor." The latter comment was, according to Trudeau, about Trump's sudden announcement that the 2020 G7 summit would be held at Camp David.

No personal insults to Trump were said on the video, but the President was reportedly furious.

He responded by calling Trudeau "two-faced."

After an awkward silence, Trump clarified that he thinks Trudeau is a "nice guy," but isn't paying in enough to NATO.

Then, the President—whose son wrote a book about how Liberals are too sensitive—cancelled a concluding press conference and decided to return to Washington.

Some think Trump is being too sensitive.





Others thought that Trump's reaction was illustrative of a greater threat to the Republic.


At the end of his press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump was heard on a hot mic saying, "That was funny when I called that guy two-faced."

Yeah, these three years have been a real laugh riot.

Amendment 4—a Florida referendum restoring voting rights to former felons—passed in 2018 with 65% of the vote, paving the way for an additional 1.4 million voters in the swing state.

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis immediately took steps to undermine the public will by signing into law a bill that would only restore voting rights to felons who fully pay all fees and fines imposed after leaving prison.

Under Florida law, court debts left unpaid after three months are referred to private debt collectors, who can then tack on a surcharge of up to 40%.

Now that the impeachment articles have been transferred to the U.S. Senate and Senators have been sworn in as jurors, Donald Trump's Senate impeachment trial is officially underway.

And while it's adjourned for the long weekend, the White House just announced their legal team, and it's a doozy.

In addition to lead attorneys Pat Cipollone and Jay Sekulow, Trump's legal team will consist of five additional lawyers who are expected to have speaking roles on the Senate floor throughout the trial:

  • Robert Ray
  • Alan Dershowitz
  • Ken Starr
  • Jane Raskin
  • Pam Bondi
Yep, you read that right, Ken Starr, of Clinton impeachment infamy.

And none other than Monica Lewinsky herself weighed in with a reaction that was relatable AF:

Many were here for it and had Lewinsky's back.





But doesn't that sentiment pretty much define every day?



And how is that going to. go for Starr?

Fair:

Can we make this happen, please?
