While the president had a day of meetings planned with world leaders, his moment on the world stage risked being upstaged by the impeachment inquiry.

President Donald Trump came out swinging at friends and foes here Tuesday, accusing Democrats of being “unpatriotic” and calling remarks by French President Emmanuel Macron “very, very nasty.”

“I think it’s very unpatriotic of the Democrats to put on a performance where they do that,” Trump said of the House impeachment inquiry, in his first public comments since arriving in London. “I do. I think it’s a bad thing for our country. Impeachment wasn’t supposed to be used that way.”

Later in the day, with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau seated at his side, Trump called House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., “a maniac” and a “deranged human being.”

The president also rattled markets by suggesting trade deal negotiations with China might not end until after the election next year.

Trump made the remarks during a trio of wide-ranging question-and-answer sessions. The president spent more than two hours over the course of the day talking to reporters, announcing during his session with Trudeau that next year’s G-7 meeting — originally destined for his Doral resort in Florida, amid controversy — would be held at Camp David.
