Trump Just Tried His Bullying Technique on Australia
Every day when I turn on my computer, I think to myself... What kind of lunatic tweet has Nut-ball in Chief’s tiny little fingers typed out to the world this morning getting us closer to a WW. There's always something, whether it be a giant step or a baby crawl, our psychopath leader will most assuredly bring the world (our world of reality, not his self grandiose view of the world) closer to a mushroom cloud with every f**king convoluted tweet. Today was no exception… thinkingblue
Excerpt: Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was left scrambling to defend his country’s allegiance to the U.S. after The Washington Post published a report on Thursday detailing a tense exchange that allegedly took place during the Australian leader’s first telephone call with Trump since he became president. During the call, the Post reported, Trump ranted about an agreement struck with the Obama administration that would allow a group of mostly Muslim refugees rejected by Australia to be resettled in the United States. The newspaper said Trump dubbed it “the worst deal ever” and accused Turnbull of seeking to export the “next Boston bombers” — a reference to Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, U.S. citizens born in Kyrgyzstan who set off explosives at the 2013 Boston marathon.
Though Turnbull declined to confirm the report, he also didn’t deny it, apart from rejecting one detail — that Trump had hung up on him. The prime minister insisted his country’s relationship with the U.S. remained strong, and that the refugee deal with the U.S. was still on.
