*The world leaders were gathered at a Buckingham Palace reception to mark NATO’s 70th anniversary Tuesday
Justin Trudeau, Emmanuel Macron and Boris Johnson were caught on a hot mic at the Buckingham Palace NATO reception yesterday evening, appearing to gossip about Donald Trump and the length of his impromptu press conferences.
In a clip, the three world leaders seem to be discussing why the French President was late during the London summit, held to mark the alliance’s 70th anniversary. Princess Anne also appears to be involved in the discussion but it is unclear if or how she responds.
In the clip, British Prime Minister Johnson asks: ‘Is that why you were late?’ as he stoops down and chuckles in disbelief, before Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, swigging from his drink, shoots back: ‘He was late because he takes a 40 minute press conference off the top.’
The video then cuts to a later clip, which is without context, and sees Macron pointing furiously before Mr Rutte exclaims ‘fake news media’ and Trudeau adds: ‘You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.’ He then motions as if his jaw is dropping. However, it is not known if Trump is the focus of that comment as the video has been edited.
The US President has touched down in Marine One as he and other world leaders gear up for today’s NATO summit in Hertfordshire.
