Trump Does The Unbelievable While On The ‘Worst Call Ever’ With The Australian PM

President Donald Trump was set for a conversation with the Prime Minister of Australia last week, but it didn't go well. Trump proceeded to criticize our allies from down under for a refugee agreement.

President Trump told Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull that his refugee agreement that he brokered with former President Barack Obama while he was in office. Trump is not at all happy about it, and he didn’t hold back in letting the Australian government official know.

Mr. Trump told Turnbull that it was 'the worst deal ever' and complained he was going to 'get killed' over it politically. The pledge says that the U.S. would agree to take in 1,250 refugees being held at an Australian detention center. Originally it was supposed to be 2,000 people.

President Trump also took some time to boast to Turnball about his electoral college win, says U.S. officials who were present during the call.

The phone call was supposed to last an hour, but President Trump cut it short at 25 minutes. He still had more to say about it later, and as is his usual habit, took to Twitter to voice his opinion.

“Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!” he vowed.

The call came just a day before President Trump took executive actions to enact a temporary travel ban from countries known to be hotbeds for terrorism.

“I don’t want these people,” President Trump said about the refugees, though there has been confirmation that he plans to honor the agreement. An embassy spokesman from the Sydney consulate said, “This was just reconfirmed to the State Department from the White House and on to this embassy at 1315 Canberra time.”

The call isn't reflecting well on the new president and his way of talking to other world leaders. It's not boosting the confidence of anyone hoping that the outspoken man will reign in his tongue when dealing with even U.S. allies.
