Row erupts over gossip at NATO summit

A row has erupted after leaders were seen to gossip behind the back of US President Donald Trump at the NATO Summit.

Videos of the gossip, which have been widely shared on social media, appear to show Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau saying ‘I watched his team’s jaws drop to the floor’.

US President Donald Trump has called Mr Trudeau ‘two-faced’ following the incident. Mr Trump has also cancelled a press conference and cut short his attendance at the NATO conference.

The summit, which was marking the alliance’s 70 year anniversary, was due to bring leaders together to discuss the future of NATO.

Mr Trump has also recently criticised comments by French President Emmanuel Macron where last month he described the NATO alliance as ‘brain dead’ and said that he felt members were no longer co-operating on key issues.
