Trudeau and Xi spoke face to face briefly on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali on Tuesday. After the unofficial meeting, the Prime Minister’s Office issued a readout of the conversation noting the topics that were discussed and who raised them.
According to the readout, during the brief discussion between the two leaders — who have been at odds over trade and the arrest and detention of two Canadians — Trudeau raised concerns about media reports that China covertly funded 11 candidates in the 2019 federal election.
The pair were pictured speaking informally in a crowded room in a photograph released by the Prime Minister’s Office to mark the meeting.
Trudeau interrupted the Chinese leader, telling him that while they have disagreements, they should work together.
“We believe in free and open and frank dialogue and that is what we will continue to have. We will continue to look to work constructively together, but there will be things we will disagree on, and we will have to…” Trudeau said before Xi interrupted.
“Let’s create the conditions first,” Xi said extending his hand to Trudeau, before the pair shook and parted ways.
Pay close attention to the mannerisms here. Watch Xi, then watch Justin Trudeau:
Xi berates commie-wannabe Justin for their conversation the previous day being shared with the media.
Xi is shorter than Justin, but notice how Justin leans in. Xi is expressive and emotional, while Justin is tense and unmoving.
It’s worth noting that Xi seemed genuinely agitated in the exchange despite his smiles. Notice how he shifted his weight back and forth and looked around the room instead of looking into Justin’s baby-blue eyes.
Chinese President Xi Jinping has accused Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of behaving inappropriately by leaking the substance of a conversation between the two leaders to the media.
The accusations came as the pair crossed paths in a public space in Bali, Indonesia, where both leaders are attending the G20 summit.
“Everything we discuss has been leaked to the paper; that’s not appropriate,” Xi told Trudeau through an interpreter.
“That’s not … the way the conversation was conducted. If there is sincerity on your part—” Xi said.
Xi is the absolute winner of this summit as he took on beta-Biden a few days back and the situation wasn’t looking good!
As we reported footage shows the two presidents greeting one another in front of the international press, posing for photographs inside a conference room before sitting down across from each other with large entourages of interpreters and senior advisers.
The body language of Xi when they stopped shaking hands is very telling.
And his face really says it all!
Biden and Xi walked toward each other from opposite sides of a hotel lobby and shook hands in front of a row of US and Chinese flags just after 5:30 p.m. local time.
Watch the video below:
The respect for Biden on the world stage is gone!
But sadly our country’s reputation is also on the line!
The western culture looks blank with these two leaders!
