World leaders caught gossiping about Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump appears to have been the subject on Tuesday (December 3) of some gossiping between world leaders - including Justin Trudeau, Emmanuel Macron and Boris Johnson.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) UK PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON SAYING TO FRENCH PRESIDENT EMMANUEL MACRON: "Is that why, is that why you were late?" (SOUNDBITE) (English) CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU SAYING: "It was like a 40 minute press conference, off the top... oh yeah, yeah, 40 minutes, he announced..." Much of the conversation is inaudible, and Trump is not named but the Canadian prime minister appear to be referencing lengthy press statements made by Trump earlier in the day.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER JUSTIN TRUDEAU SAYING: "I just watched his team's jaws drop to the floor." The conversation was recorded at Buckingham Palace at an event ahead of the NATO summit on Wednesday (December 4).

It also includes a reference to "Doral, in Miami", where Trump has a golf resort which he had touted as the host site for next year's G7 summit.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP TO MACRON: "Would you like some nice ISIS fighters?" The conversation followed a day of pre-summit bilateral meetings in which stark differences between world leaders were aired.
