US President Trump has been obsessed with the idea of people and more importantly other countries laughing at the USA. Sadly, his 'laughing at us' Twitter rant has come true.
UK PM Boris Johnson, the French president Emmanuel Macron, Dutch PM Mark Rutte, Canada’s Justin Trudeau and later joined by Princess Anne at the Buckingham palace were captured sharing a couple of jokes on Trump’s approach towards international diplomacy.
Trump’s famous 2014 tweet is no longer a dig at the any of the former US Presidents but himself. Trump had tweeted, “We need a President who isn’t a laughing stock to the entire World, We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning. Respect!”
In the video, Boris Johnson, who Trump has supported, is seen turning to Macron with a smirk and asking, “Is that why you were late?” when the Trudeau took a dig at Trump saying, “He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top.” Macron had returned from a joint press conference with Trump.
Macron replies with an animated expression validating Trudeau who wasn't done with flaunting his humour. Trudeau can be seen saying, “You just watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor!”Later Princess Anne can be seen joining the four world leaders.
Before he took charge as the President, Trump tweeted several times saying ‘China is laughing at us’, ‘Mexico is laughing at us’, ‘the Arab League members are laughing at us’. Funnily, a recent video of world leaders attending the NATO summit laughing at President Trump is being circulated and Trump is not happy.
Obama & Democrat leaders did a great disservice by releasing the papers on torture. The world is laughing at us—they think we are fools!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2014
China just put a tariff on US cars and trucks--22%--China is laughing at our inept leaders. @BarackObama— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 16, 2011
Mexico is allowing many thousands to go thru their country & to our very stupid open door. The Mexicans are laughing at us as buses pass by.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 10, 2014
Sadly, him being the current US President and being subjected to such mockery isn’t going to end up well for his huge ego. When asked about the video, Trump called the Canadian Prime Minister ‘two-faced’.
