Dang! Trump hang up on Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over Muslim refugees-exchange deal  he had with Obama: ‘Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!’

 

FROM Daily Mail : Trump HUNG UP on Australian PM after ‘yelling’ at him over refugee deal and accused the PM of trying to ‘ship the next Boston bombers’ to the U.S.

Donald Trump slammed Malcolm Turnbull over a proposed asylum seeker deal and accused the Australian Prime Minister of looking to ship off the ‘next Boston bombers’ to the United States during their first official telephone conversation.

On Thursday afternoon the newly-elected president took to Twitter to slam the Obama administration for agreeing to take on the refugees in the first place.

‘Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!,’ he wrote.

Senior US officials told the Washington Post that Donald Trump abruptly hung up on Mr Turnbull after just 25 minutes – when the pair were meant to speak for an hour.

But an indignant Mr Turnbull returned serve, telling 2GB’s Ben Fordham: ‘As far as the call is concerned, I’m very disappointed, the report the president hung up is not correct, the call ended courteously.

What is the Australia-US refugee deal?

The Obama administration and Turnbull government struck a deal to resettle some of the refugees being held offshore in Nauru and Manus Island in November last year

The Australian government has a ‘zero tolerance’ policy towards illegal boat arrivals and only genuine refugees are sent to Nauru and Manus Island

There are approximately 1,250 refugees being held in the Australian-funded offshore detention centres

A large majority of those refugees come from Iran, Iraq and Somalia – all countries on US President Donald Trump’s travel-ban
