The Washington Postsaid the call had been scheduled to last an hour but Trump cut it short after 25 minutes, having taken time to boast about the size of his electoral college win in November's USA election. Trump said. "The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why?"
"A true ally who deserves respect", he tweeted Thursday.
After a reportedly stormy phone call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, US President Donald Trump turned to his favourite mouthpiece, Twitter, to vent his ire. Mexico denies that Trump threatened invade Mexico, and CNN reports that AP was quoting an official readout of the call written by aides, not the transcript.
Trump reportedly told Turnbull that the resettlement agreement "was the worst deal ever" when the latter attempted to secure confirmation that the us would follow through with its promise.
So. We knew that Donald Trump and Malcolm Turnbull had a conversation on the phone. He also boasted about his electoral college win, before abruptly ending the call, which was expected to last about an hour, about 25 minutes in.
Mr Turnbull said he was disappointed details of the call, which he described as "very frank and forthright", had been made public.
He said: "When you hear about the tough phone calls I'm having, don't worry about, just don't worry about it, they're tough, we have to be tough, it's time we have to be a little bit tough folks".
That came after the White House issued a warning that the U.S. will act against Iran unless it stops testing ballistic missiles and supporting Houthi rebels in Yemen.

The Australian PM said despite Trump's tweet on Wednesday, the United States officials were already assessing the issue.
The refugee deal that Mr Trump had berated was agreed late past year due to Australia's fighting alongside U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. However, he said Mr Trump had assured him the deal would go ahead.
When Mr Turnbull suggested the two leaders move on from discussing refugees to the conflict in Syria and other issues, the President chose to end the call.
A day earlier Trump had signed an executive order temporarily blocking all refugees from entering the United States.
I'm not dealing with unofficial calls from unnamed people.
