President Donald Trump of US has referred to the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, as a 'two-faced' person over a viral video that captured moments in a meeting of NATO leaders held at Buckingham Palace.

In the video, Johnson wanted to know why Macron was late for the NATO meeting; interjecting, Trudeau said: "He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top."

The footage also revealed the Canadian leader speaking of Trump: "Oh yeah, yeah, he announced... [inaudible]. You just watched his team's jaw drop to the floor."

In reaction to this, Trump said: "He's two-faced... I find him to be a nice guy, but the truth is I called him out on the fact that he's not paying 2% [of national GDP towards defence] and I guess he's not very happy about it."

Following this incident, the US president abruptly cancelled a planned press conference and headed back to Washington.
