Trump mars North Atlantic Treaty Organisation unity message

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau were heard making remarks at a Buckingham Palace reception reportedly about Trump mars North Atlantic Treaty Organisation unity message

The clip of Trudeau and other world leaders - including British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte - seemingly laughing about US President Donald Trump that made headlines yesterday has been re-purposed by Joe Biden's team to kick off an attack ad on Trump.

Aiming to play the role of global statesman as the impeachment drama was unfolding in Washington, President Donald Trump instead shattered NATO's professed message of unity at its 70th anniversary celebration in England and put his personal and policy differences with alliance members on stark display. He added that his "jaws dropped" comment was in reference to Trump's announcement that the next G7 summit would be held at Camp David, after Trump initially wanted to hold it at his Doral golf resort.

Throughout the video, Biden calls the president "insincere, ill-informed, corrupt, dangerously incompetent and incapable, in my view, of world leadership".

The video has seen been viewed more than five million times.

Now one of Trump's domestic political opponents has capitalized on the hot-mic moment to create his own video.

"I imagine the relationship will be the same because at least President Trump is honest when he's calling out a foreign leader and the way he feels about them not paying their defense dues to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - which has been a problem in Canada and with some other allies, not being on the right side of a reciprocal trade deal with this country", Conway said.

But less than an hour after Air Force One landed with Mr Trump back in the U.S. on Wednesday night, Mr Biden dropped his ad.

Despite Trump's praise for Boris Johnson, Politico reported that the British prime minister was "so keen not to be photographed with the U.S. president that he did not even greet him at the door when he and wife Melania arrived". Others warned the ad would only inspire a similar video from the Trump campaign centred on Mr Biden's numerous gaffes.

"He's two-faced", he said on Wednesday.

After lashing out at Trudeau, Trump announced that he would cancel his Wednesday press conference.

"That's complete nonsense. I don't know where that's come from", Mr Johnson said.

Trudeau has since acknowledged the video and reiterated that he maintained a "good and constructive relationship" with the president. But it was certainly notable.

Macron raged that the video - said to be captured by freelance cameraman Andy Laurence and handed to broadcasters before being first aired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation - was "stolen" as cameras should not have been rolling in that room. "Really, really disturbed me", he said.
