You Won't Believe What Trump Said To The Australian Prime Minister In This Transcript!

Malcolm Turnbull Meets With President Trump In New York

Cliiiiiicckkkbaaaaiiiiitttt! Geaux Riggs!

In January, Trump engaged in a heated conversation with Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull. The Washington Post published the transcript of that call. Much of the dialogue was over a refugee deal struck under Obama in which we agreed to take in up to 1,250 refugees if Australia would take in refugees from Central America. Not that sexy or exciting, I know.

BUT, the actual words are where the juice is. Trump has the best words. Australia has some policy where they don’t allow refugees in via boat. If you come by plane or apparation, you’re good. Boat? You’re fucked. When Turnbull told Trump they hold these people in detention facilities in Nauru or on some Papua New Guinea island, he said:

“That is a good idea. We should do that too. You are worse than I am.”

On allowing the refugees, Trump commented (remember, the number is 1,250):

“This is going to kill me. I am the world’s greatest person that does not want to let people into the country. And now I am agreeing to take 2,000 people and I agree I can vet them, but that puts me in a bad position. It makes me look so bad and I have only been here a week.”

Turnbull’s response:

“With great respect, that is not right – It is not 2,000.”

Must fucking KILL Turnbull that he has to tip-toe around with Trump because of how powerful we are with shit like “with great respect.” I’m POSITIVE he wants to just say, “hey asshole that’s wrong, get it right.”

Here’s a longer, more detailed portion of the exchange.

TRUMP: Does anybody know who these people are? Who are they? Where do they come from? Are they going to become the Boston bomber in five years? Or two years? Who are these people?

TURNBULL: Let me explain. We know exactly who they are. They have been on Nauru or Manus for over three years and the only reason we cannot let them into Australia is because of our commitment to not allow people to come by boat. Otherwise we would have let them in. If they had arrived by airplane and with a tourist visa then they would be here.

TRUMP: Malcom [sic], but they are arrived on a boat?

TURNBULL: Correct, we have stopped the boats.

TRUMP: Give them to the United States. We are like a dumping ground for the rest of the world. I have been here for a period of time, I just want this to stop. I look so foolish doing this. It [sic] know it is good for you but it is bad for me. It is horrible for me. This is what I am trying to stop. I do not want to have more San Bernardino’s or World Trade Centers. I could name 30 others, but I do not have enough time.

TURNBULL: These guys are not in that league. They are economic refugees.

TRUMP:Okay, good. Can Australia give me a guarantee that if we have any problems – you know that is what they said about the Boston bombers. They said they were wonderful young men.

TURNBULL: They were Russians. They were not from any of these countries.

TRUMP: They were from wherever they were.

And more on the refugees at hand…

TRUMP: I guarantee you they are bad. That is why they are in prison right now. They are not going to be wonderful people who go on to work for the local milk people.”

TURNBULL: “I would not be so sure about that. They are basically —

TRUMP: “Well, maybe you should let them out of prison.”

“The local milk people” hahahaha.

Let’s continue…

TRUMP: I do not know where they find these people to make these stupid deals. I am going to get killed on this thing.

TURNBULL: You will not.

TRUMP: Yes, I will be seen as a weak and ineffective leader in my first week by these people. This is a killer.

TURNBULL: You can certainly say that it was not a deal that you would have done, but you are going to stick with it.

TRUMP: I have no choice to say that about it. Malcom [sic], I am going to say that I have no choice but to honor my predecessor’s deal. I think it is a horrible deal, a disgusting deal that I would have never made. It is an embarrassment to the United States of America and you can say it just the way I said it. I will say it just that way. As far as I am concerned that is enough Malcom [sic]. I have had it. I have been making these calls all day and this is the most unpleasant call all day. Putin was a pleasant call. This is ridiculous.

TURNBULL: Do you want to talk about Syria and DPRK?

TRUMP: [inaudible] this is crazy.

TURNBULL: Thank you for your commitment. It is very important to us.

TRUMP: It is important to you and it is embarrassing to me. It is an embarrassment to me, but at least I got you off the hook. So you put me back on the hook.

TURNBULL: You can count on me. I will be there again and again.

TRUMP: I hope so. Okay, thank you Malcolm.

TURNBULL: Okay, thank you.

LOVE the “yo Trump do you want to talk about Syria and North Korea?…”

“…this is crazy” response. Great stuff from Donnie. Profound.

Trump would go on to tell Turnbull that he had spoken with a bunch of other country’s leaders that day and that “this was my most unpleasant call because I will be honest with you,” and end the call with, “Putin was a pleasant call. This is ridiculous.”

And that was talking to Australia.
