Footage emerged from NATO leaders at Buckingham Palace in London on Tuesday, which appears to show several heads of states joking around and gossiping about US President Donald Trump.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson was caught on camera asking French President Macron "Is that why he is late?" provoking the reaction of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who replied that "he was late because he takes a forty-minute press conference."

Trudeau's comment was then followed by Macron, whose comment could not be heard as he was not facing the camera. However Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte could be heard saying "fake news media," a phrase now associated with the US President.

The group cannot be heard explicitly saying Trump's name, however, as soon as the footage emerged, the media guessed that the leaders may likely have been speaking about the US President, who happened to have had a 50-minute back and forth with journalists earlier in the day.
