In his sit-down meetings with French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump raised eyebrows with a number of insulting and exaggerated statements.
President Donald Trump made his mark on yet another North Atlantic Treaty Association (NATO) summit in London, England on Tuesday with a series of wild, off-the-cuff comments in meetings with world leaders.
Throughout his presidency, Trump has created highly awkward moments at international summits by sharply criticizing the US's European allies over, among other things, trade, defense issues, and NATO's budget. In both his sit-down meetings with French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Trump raised eyebrows with a number of insulting and exaggerated statements about subjects including ISIS fighters, climate change, and his own political foes in the United States.
Here are some of Trump's most outlandish comments at this year's summit so far, reported by CNN's Daniel Dale and Jim Sciutto:
