Trump hints at possible trade action against Canada, other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries

Joe Biden, the former US vice-president and a leading Democratic presidential candidate, released a new campaign ad late Wednesday that uses the video to criticize Trump and his ability to lead alongside global counterparts.

But after events Tuesday evening, relations between Trump and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took a turn for the worse. They see him for what he really is: "dangerously incompetent and incapable of world leadership", Biden wrote on Twitter, adding "We can not give him four more years as commander in chief".

By comparison, Trump's video about his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation trip had 1.4 million views and 14,600 retweets in the space of 12 hours.

A video of a group of world leaders at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit speaking to each other took social media by storm as they seemed to be mocking U.S. president Donald Trump.

A video of Justin Trudeau gossiping with other world leaders about Donald Trump is featuring in an advertisement for the US president's leading political rival. But not too soft to say so, because then they will not continue to pay, as they have done in the last 15 years.

Former Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk has appeared to mock the US President after posting a freakish photo online.

Conway on Thursday said the comments came because of the fact that Trump "commands the room" and that "maybe that makes people jealous", but people on social media tend to look at clips without paying attention to the context rather than what was really going on.

Last week Tusk branded President Trump as possibly the greatest challenge for the European Union in a German newspaper column.

"What happened in the recent North Atlantic Treaty Organisation conference has disturbed me".

The only thing missing from their derision - and undoubtedly one of the topics for more private contempt - is a discussion concerning the willful ignorance of millions of Republicans who continue to support Trump, the "ugly American". Trudeau then says Trump staffers' "jaws dropped to the floor" when Trump announced the next North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting would be held at Camp David.

Trudeau is centrefold in the video, audibly describing the "40-minute press conference" Trump took with reporters.

"Some (countries are) really not close and we may have to do something with trade", he told reprsentatives of the UN Security Council, CTV reported.

Speaking on CTV's Power Play on Thursday, Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland sidestepped a question about whether the exposed conversation had hurt relations between Canada and the U.S. "I think we would agree that the current USA administration (and) the current government of Canada disagree about a lot of things and we're candid with each other about that".
