The leaders of Britain, Canada, France and the Netherlands have been caught on a camera in the Buckingham Palace mocking United States President Donald Trump’s lengthy media appearances ahead of Wednesday’s NATO summit.
The footage, shot by the British host’s camera pool on Tuesday evening and spotted and subtitled by Canada’s CBC, set the tone for the allies’ summit in Watford, just outside London.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson can be heard asking France’s President Emmanuel Macron: “Is that why you were late?”
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau interjects: “He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top.”
“Oh, yeah, yeah, he announced...” an amused Trudeau declares, adding: “You just watched his team’s jaw drop to the floor.”
