Trump retaliated by saying the French economy was in tatters and that the U.S. would respond to a tax on American tech giants by placing levies on French goods.
"'Well, he's two-faced", Trump said of Trudeau alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday.
"I don't see any possible consensus", Macron said after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit marred by the spat with Turkey over its demand that allies brand as "terrorists" the Kurdish militias of northeastern Syria that helped a US-led coalition defeat the Islamic State group.
And we also saw France's President Macron refuse to take any of Trump's crap during their joint press conference.
But as he sat next to Trudeau in front of reporters on Tuesday, Trump was asked if he was "happy with Canadian defense spending as it is right now", and said he was "satisfied" with Canada's increased levels of spending. But the leaders of two of the world's closest allies have had their prickly exchanges before.
3 reasons Chris Petersen is not done coaching
I will be a Husky for life, but now it's the right time for me to get away from my duties as head coach and recharge. He left after only one season and eventually wound up on Petersen's staff at Boise State as a defensive backs coach.
That included an exchange with Trump during an impromptu 40-minute news conference Tuesday in which the Canadian prime minister tried to deflect the USA president's attention away from the fact Canada has no plan to reach the two-per-cent target.
"Countries other than the USA have agreed to pay 130 Billion Dollars more per year, and by 2024, that number will be 400 Billion Dollars".
Trump and Trudeau are not the best of friends.
After a pause, he continued: "And honestly, with Trudeau, he's a nice guy".
"We do not agree to classify the YPG-PYD as a terrorist group", he told reporters.
"Look, I'm representing the United States and he should be paying more than he's paying and he understands that".
Ballon D'or awards ceremony on December 3
Messi is expected to win the award after following up a stellar 2018/19 season with ten goals in 13 appearances for Barcelona . "If you give the Ballon d'Or to the best player of this generation then you should give it always to Lionel Messi ".
English broadcaster Piers Morgan said the president would love the fact that "they're all talking about him".
Two senior Trump advisers piled on. "And that's the way I like it", he added.
Mr Macron held his ground over his earlier criticism of NATO's strategy, saying as he arrived that it was important for leaders to discuss issues in an open and forthright manner if they were to find solutions. The summit will happen in Watford, outside London. New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, for example, tweeted, "Can't get over this video, both for the fact that POTUS hates the thought of anyone laughing at him and for the fact that he long used "other countries are laughing at us" as an attack against his predecessors". The prime minister's conservative allies anxious Trump's embrace could damage Johnson ahead of crucial parliamentary elections next week.
It's expected the leaders, who earlier Wednesday morning gathered for the annual family photo, will talk about everything from the fight against terrorism, to relationships with Russian Federation and the rise of China.
Mr Johnson asks Mr Macron "is that why you were late?"
Trump insisted his accommodation with Erdoğan has helped US interests, even as it has cost the lives and territory of America's longtime allies against Islamic State, the Kurds, and helped Russian Federation bolster its power and influence in the region.
