In a video released by Biden's Twitter account, ominous music plays as news anchors discuss footage of Canadian Prime Minister Justin TrudeauJustin Pierre James TrudeauBiden administration stokes frustration over Canada The Hill's 12:30 Report - Presented by Goldman Sachs - Schumer moves ahead with likely-to-fail infrastructure vote US extends travel restrictions with Canada, Mexico MORE, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel MacronEmmanuel Jean-Michel MacronFrench parliament approves COVID-19 passes for restaurants, domestic travel WhatsApp chief: US allies' national security officials targeted with NSO malware US athletes chant 'Dr. Biden' as first lady cheers swimmers MORE discussing Trump's lengthy press conference earlier Wednesday.

Biden, a 2020 candidate for president, says at the end of the video that the U.S. will face a "great deal of difficulty" regaining respect on the world stage should Trump be reelected.

"The world is laughing at President Trump. They see him for what he really is: dangerously incompetent and incapable of world leadership. We cannot give him four more years as commander in chief," he added on Twitter.

In the Wednesday footage, Trudeau can be heard saying, "He was late because he takes a 40-minute press conference off the top," though he does not mention Trump's name.

Trump himself addressed the comments made by Trudeau, calling the Canadian leader "two-faced" while adding that the world leaders "weren't laughing at me, they were laughing with me."

Some speculated that the recorded exchange between the world leaders was what led to Trump canceling his scheduled press conference before heading back home from the NATO summit in London.
