Our POTUS Trump spent the conversation either bragging about the size of his Electoral College victory to Turnbull or blasting the Aussie leader over a refugee agreement between the two countries. At one point, with Trump noting that this was his fifth call with world leaders that day, he informed Turnbull “this was the worst call by far.”
He also stated “This is the worst deal ever,” POTUS Trump fumed as Turnbull attempted to confirm that the United States would honor its pledge to take in 1,250 refugees from an Australian detention center. Trump, who one day earlier had signed an executive order temporarily barring the admissions of refugees, complained that he was “going to get killed” politically and accused Australia of seeking to export the “next Boston bombers.”
