Americans have taken to social media to apologise to Australians after US President Donald Trump’s “hostile” phone call to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull regarding the refugee resettlement deal.
During the 25-minute conversation, Mr Trump reportedly called it “the worst deal ever” and accused Mr Turnbull of seeking to export the “next Boston bombers”.
On Twitter, he said: “Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!”.
After that tweet, social media was flooded with apologies from Americans distancing themselves from their President and expressing their embarrassment.
