Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was made to look like a fool by Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Xi made clear to Trudeau that he was not happy with the details of a previous discussion being leaked to the media.
“Everything we discuss has been leaked to the paper, that’s not appropriate,” Xi told Trudeau through a translator at the G20 summit. “That’s not the way the conversation was conducted.”

Trudeau said, “if there is sincerity, we can communicate well with mutual respect, otherwise I don’t know what the consequences will be.”
Trudeau spoke back, saying that “in Canada, we believe in a free and open and frank dialogue and that is what we will continue to have.” His comments were not translated to Xi, who may have enough of an understanding of English to not require a translator while being spoken to.
“We will continue to look to work constructively together but there will be things we will disagree on,” Trudeau added.
Xi then said, “let’s create the conditions first.”
Xi then shook hands with Trudeau before walking away, leaving Trudeau in a state of visible shock.
Xi was upset over media reports that Trudeau raised “serious concerns” over alleged Chinese interference in Canadian elections. CSIS, Canada’s federal intelligence agency, raised flags that China may have targeted Canada with a campaign of foreign interference.
The experience for Trudeau was likely not pleasant, especially for a leader who has publicly expressed admiration over China’s “basic dictatorship,” and allowed Chinese troops to do cold-weather military training within its borders.
