In it, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson can be heard asking French President Emmanuel Macron why he was late, to which Trudeau says: "He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top."

The leaders do not use Trump's name, but the U.S. president took dozens of questions from journalists on Tuesday during impromptu news conferences at the start of his individual meetings with Macron, Trudeau and NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

Trump's impromptu news conference with Trudeau lasted more than half an hour, which included questions about China, the impeachment process and also saw the Canadian prime minister deflecting questions from the U.S. president about Canada's defence spending.

The reception footage also shows Trudeau talking about "his team's jaws drop to the floor," though the subject isn't clear.

Trudeau says relationship with U.S. 'extremely strong' despite Trump 'two-faced' comment

  Trudeau says relationship with U.S. 'extremely strong' despite Trump 'two-faced' comment Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada's relationship with the United States is "extremely strong," despite President Donald Trump calling him "two-faced" after the Canadian prime minister was caught venting on camera as world leaders gathered in London at the NATO summit.A misery-loves-company moment involving Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron and the U.K.'s Boris Johnson, among others, has gone viral since it was captured on video during a reception at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday night.

Adding to Trump ’s steadily growing collection of awkward handshakes, the US president put out his hand to Trudeau only to be met with a bemused stare. While it was merely a split-second snap captured by a lucky photographer, and in fact Trudeau went on to happily shake Trump ’s hand, the

The Prime Minister's Office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Trudeau is scheduled to hold a news conference at the end of the NATO summit on Wednesday.

The footage, shot by the British host's pool camera, has since spread across the internet and been broadcast by international media such as Fox News and the New York Times, with observers suggesting Trudeau and the other leaders were mocking Trump.

That has prompted questions and concerns about how the mercurial U.S. president will react.

"By this point in his tenure, the prime minister should realize that events with pool cameras need to be approached and managed as on-the-record events," Andrew MacDougall, former director of communications for prime minister Stephen Harper, wrote on Twitter.

"Hopefully this gaffe doesn’t wind the president up at a sensitive time for NAFTA and the Meng (Wanzhou)/Huawei file."

Ottawa failed to spend almost $8B in promised defence cash over recent years

  Ottawa failed to spend almost $8B in promised defence cash over recent years Documents show billions of planned spending not spent over the last two complete fiscal years. According to documents obtained from the Department of National Defence, the federal government underspent roughly $7.79 billion worth of promised money mostly for capital projects, which includes everything from spending on facilities to equipment and military procurement, in fiscal 2017-18 and 2018-19. The unspent money also came from areas including operations and maintenance, those documents suggest.

Twitter went wild for the video , with many commenting on Clinton’s so-called elusive sense of humor and Trump ’s sexual assault allegations. In February, when meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau , Trump was videotaped thrusting his hand out while Trudeau appeared to hesitate.

The clip shows Trudeau complaining about what is presumably Trump ’s signature ways with the media and his uncanny ability to take his own staffers aback with off-the-cuff It’s unclear what Trudeau was referring to exactly when he was talking about the startled reaction of Trump ’s staffers.

Trump had not replied before the start of Wednesday's closed-door meeting of NATO leaders, tweeting only about having enjoyed his meeting with Johnson during the previous night's reception.

Trudeau was seen approaching the U.S. president prior to the meeting, where the two shook hands and exchanged a few words before going their separate ways.

While Trudeau has spent much of the past three years trying to establish a good relationship with Trump, the U.S. president has not shied away from lashing out any perceived slight from fellow world leaders.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump slammed Macron for having suggested the NATO alliance was suffering from "brain death" because of a lack of communication and co-ordination, particularly with regards to U.S. and Turkish actions in northeastern Syria.

Trump described Macron's comments as "very nasty" before criticizing France's economy and warning the European country needed NATO far more than the U.S. Other NATO leaders have been trying to bridge the divide and keep the alliance strong and united.

The U.S. president also previously attacked Trudeau following the G7 summit in Quebec City in June 2018, describing the latter as "so meek and mild" amid a trade row over Canadian dairy and American tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.
