Trump sledges Aus PM over migrants TRUMP HANGS UP ON TURNBULL
US President Donald Trump will be Donald Trump, even with world leaders. In a customary call on Saturday, he blasted Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, bragged about his election and hung up on him.
“This was the worst call by far,” Trump told Turnbull, according to The Washington Post which first reported it, after letting him know he had spoken to three other world leaders earlier that day, including Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Trump got angry, it was reported, when the Australian leader tried to extract an undertaking from him to accept 1,250 refugees from an Australian detention centre as agreed by former president Barack Obama.
Trump had signed an executive order the day before banning all refugees from entering the US for 120 days — indefinitely for those from Syria — and all citizens of Muslim-majority nations Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and Libya for 90 days.
