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.
