World leaders caught on hot mic appearing to gossip about Trump

Several NATO leaders seem to have been caught gossiping about President Trump on a hot mic, AP reports.

  • During a reception at Buckingham Palace, Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked French President Emmanuel Macron: "Is that why you were late?"
  • Canadian Prime Minister Justin TrudeauTrudeau said: "He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top." That appeared to refer to a long, unscheduled Q&A by Trump, who wasn't mentioned by name.
  • Trudeau also said: “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor.”
