Leaked Recording Circulates Of Australia's Prime Minister Mocking Donald Trump

By Mark Pygas

Donald Trump doesn't exactly have the best record when it comes to diplomacy. In February, media reported that he "yelled" at his Australian counterpart Prime Minister  Malcolm Turnbull and then hung up mid-conversation. Apparently, President Trump was angry that former President Barack Obama had agreed to resettle up to 1,250 asylum seekers who are held in Australian processing camps in Papua New Guinea and Nauru.  

The deal was agreed to as thanks for Australia’s involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, and in return, Australia would also resettle refugees from several central American countries. Of course, Trump took to Twitter after the conversation to voice his displeasure.
