Trump Spars With Australian Leader Over Refugees: 'I Hate Taking These People'

Malcolm Turnbull will discuss power prices with Australia s major electricity companies next week

During a flurry of post-inauguration global calls, new U.S. President Donald Trump had a particularly acrimonious discussion with Malcolm Turnbull, Australia's prime minister.

The leaders had some common ground, both slamming the open door policy in Germany on refugees.

Mr Trump was not happy, but eventually conceded he will accept the deal originally agreed upon a year ago between Mr Turnbull and then United States president Barack Obama. I think you can comply with it, ' Mr Turnbull said.

There's more explaining and more not listening and this gem from Trump: "What is the thing with boats?"

Trump expressed his admiration for Australia's refusal to allow refugee boats to reach its shores, saying it "is a good idea".

In a similar exchange, he told Mr Trump: "You can certainly say that it was not a deal that you would have done, but you are going to stick with it".

Mr Trump returned: "This is going to kill me". "It is entirely up to you", the PM said.

The President also boasted of his electoral victory, "They said I had no way to 270 and I got 306 (electoral colleges) and spoke in his trademark blunt style throughout the conversation". As far as I am concerned that is enough Malcom [sic].

However, the refugees from the islands were largely from Afghanistan, Iran, and Iraq, and Turnbull reassured Trump during the conversation that because he would still have the authority to vet the refugees, he wouldn't be violating his own executive order.

We'll let the local milk people be the judge of that. "I have been making these calls all day, and this is the most unpleasant call all day".

Turnbull, early in the call, pivots from introductory pleasantries to highlighting similarities in US and Australian policies with regard to "national security and border protection".

"The obligation is to only go through the process", Turnbull said, according to the transcript.

Mr Trump fired back: "It is important to you and it is embarrassing to me".

It started off ok, the pair chatting about mutual friend golfer Greg Norman "I guess our friend Greg Norman, he is doing very well?".

"They are not going to be wonderful people who go on to work for the local milk people", Trump said, seemingly a reference to the massive US dairy industry. Putin was a pleasant call. Trump replies, "I hope so". "This is a big deal."It is really, really important to us that we maintain it".

Panda was correct in that assessment, but Trump is not a man to be tied by expectations, or, as the leaked transcript of the call proves, by deals made by his predecessor. "I will be there again and again".

In other leaked transcripts, Mr Trump told Mexico's President Pena Neito he did "not want to meet with you guys" if Mexico would not pay for the border wall.
