Dutch PM caught on camera mocking Donald Trump alongside other world leaders

Four world leaders British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte spoke amongst themselves at his week’s NATO summit, apparently mocking US President Donald Trump.

The event was a G7 reception held at Buckingham Palace and featured the world leaders discussing Trump’s seemingly rambling press conference prior to the event. In it, you can hear Rutte mockingly blaming “the fake news media”, a favorite target of the US President.

In seeming retaliation, President Trump angrily called Trudeau “two-faced”, canceled a remaining NATO related press conference, and flew back to Washington DC instead.
