French President Emmanuel Macron cut short a press conference with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Friday morning.

The press conference followed a meeting between the two leaders that was expected to focus on a range of issues including climate change, Russia and China, as well as the rise of violent extremism and online hate in many countries.

The meeting ran late, and the press conference started 50 minutes behind schedule.

After only three questions, Macron cut the conference short, telling an aide in a note in French, “I don’t have time for one-hour press conference,” Global News’ David Akin reported.
