Donald Trump accused Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of having "two faces" after he was discovered by television cameras apparently laughing at the US president along with other leaders during an informal meeting at the NATO summit. Not only that. Offended and after posing in the family photo of the summit with his worst face, Trump suspended a scheduled press conference and announced his return to the United States, in a perfect metaphor of a slam.
"Although he is a very nice guy, Trudeau has two faces," Trump told reporters at the summit. He added: "I find it pleasant, but the truth is that I called attention to the fact that he is not paying 2% (of GDP to NATO) and imagine that he is not very happy about that."
Although NATO leaders insisted on unity, on Tuesday night, under the dim light of Buckingham Palace, several of them were caught infraganti in an informal conversation in which they seemed to talk about Trump's behavior.RELATED

"40 minutes of press conference", "false media", "his team was open-mouthed", are some of the phrases that were heard and recorded during the informal talk between Justin Trudeau and his NATO colleagues , among them the French Emmanuel Macron and the British Boris Johnson.
After Johnson asked Macron why he was late, Trudeau is heard saying, "He was late because he made an impromptu 40-minute press conference." That seemed to allude to the long and unplanned question and answer session that Trump had offered and in which the Frenchman (confronted Trump by the issue of the "acephaly" of NATO) came to ask his American couple to "be serious." "You saw his team with his mouth open, '' Trudeau added, relaxed.
The images of the reception in the palace were recorded by a camera of the organization. The Canadian channel CBC broadcast them on the Internet and on Wednesday they had played more than 4 million times.
The next morning, Trump had to see them all face to face, share a work table, keep bilateral and pose for the family photo. Her face was a poem. The indisputable anger in each gesture foreshadowed what finally happened. The announcement of his anticipated departure from hostile land.
Once its bilateral meetings at the summit in Watford, northwest London, were concluded, it would not offer a final press conference. And he would leave.
…. When today’s meetings are over, I will be heading back to Washington. We won’t be doing a press conference at the close of NATO because we did so many over the past two days. Safe travels to all!
– Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 4, 2019
This he himself warned in his Twitter social network account, after he anticipated this possibility in a statement to the media during his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
"I will not give a press conference at the close of NATO because I have already given several in the last two days. Good trip for everyone!" He wrote.
At home they expect more avatars. The resumption of public hearings in the framework of the investigation in the congress for impeachment, one day after the Democrats published an extensive report confirming that there is evidence that the president "requested interference from a foreign government to benefit his re-election.
