A hot mic just caught Trump talking about how funny he is for trashing Prime Minister Trudeau
We previously reported that President Donald Trump cut short his NATO Summit visit on Wednesday after video leaked of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and other world leaders appearing to mock Trump at a cocktail function the night before.
Trump later lashed out at a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel calling him "two-faced."

It looks like Trump bragged about how funny he thought that comment was.
Per Kaitlan Collins, who covers the White House for CNN, he was caught on hot mic:
"As reporters were leaving the room during Trump's lunch with leaders from countries that meet the 2% NATO threshold, the radio pooler caught Trump saying, "That was funny when I said that guy was two-faced."

That radio pooler's name is Patsy Widakuswara. She is the Senior White House Correspondent for The Voice of America.
Per Betsy Klein, Trump also commented about his canceled press conference:
Oh, and then you know what they'll say. He didn't do a press conference. He didn't do a press conference. That was funny when I said the guy's two-faced, you know that.”
Trudeau spoke about Trump afterwards and being caught on hot mic appearing to make fun of him, as well as being referred to as "two-faced."
"We were all surprised and I think pleased to learn that the next G7 will be at Camp David. I think that was an unscheduled announcement and I think everyone's team, every different leader's teams have their jaws drop at unscheduled surprises."
