Trump on ‘tough’ calls with world leaders: ‘Don’t worry about it’


From the Washing Post:
President Trump told the American people there is no reason for concern about his contentious and at times hostile calls with foreign leaders such as the Australian prime minister, saying these dangerous times demand a U.S. president who will be 'tough' — even with steadfast allies. 
"Believe me, when you hear about the tough phone calls I'm having, don't worry about it," Trump said Thursday at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington. "Just don't worry about it. They're tough. We have to be tough. It's time we're going to be a little tough, folks. We're taken advantage of by every nation in the world, virtually. It's not going to happen anymore." 
Trump's comments came after a report in The Washington Post detailing his conversation with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull threatened to ignite a diplomatic crisis between the United States and Australia, which have been close partners on defense, intelligence and trade for more than half a century. 
Trump berated Turnbull on Saturday over a refugee agreement, brokered by former president Barack Obama, for the United States to consider admitting some 1,250 refugees currently off the Australian coast at Nauru and Manus Island in Papua New Guinea, according to senior U.S. officials. 
On a day in which Trump spoke with five foreign leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, he told Turnbull, "This was the worst call by far," the officials said. About 25 minutes into what was expected to be an hour-long call, Trump abruptly ended it. 
In his prayer breakfast remarks, Trump said, “The world is under serious, serious threat in so many different ways. And I’ve never seen it so much and so openly as since I took the position as president. The world is in trouble, but we’re going to straighten it out, okay? That’s what I do. I fix things. We’re going to straighten it out."

DJTrump Tweet Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!

Note, Trump does not need to bring these migrants to the continental US . . .

Here’s a list of the Australian refugees. Just as I suspected it’s nearly all men. What the hell does other mean? Do they have no idea where they came from?

See Table 5 - People held in immigration detention facilities at 30 September 2016

It lists nationalities and breaks down by adult male/female and child male/female. Interestingly, they include a column with a category of "Other" with 558 adult males and 45 females . . . WTH?
