Leaked transcript

Post by Dreamweaver » 04 Aug 2017, 19:19

The leaked transcript of the phone call, which took place after Mr Trump was inaugurated in January, will also deeply concern refugees awaiting resettlement because it confirms the US is not obliged to accept even a single refugee.

Mr Turnbull assured Mr Trump that, while the target was for the US to take 1250 people, it could take as few as 100 or even zero, and still honour the deal.

"The agreement ... does not require you to take 2000 people. It does not require you to take any," he told the President.

"The obligation is for the United States to look and examine and take up to and only if they so choose – 1250 to 2000. Every individual is subject to your vetting.

"You can decide to take them or to not take them after vetting. You can decide to take 1000 or 100. It is entirely up to you. The obligation is to only go through the process."

Mr Trump, who repeatedly branded the deal as "stupid" and "rotten", asked Mr Turnbull about the possibility the US could vet the refugees and decide not to accept any.

Mr Turnbull replied "that is the point I have been trying to make", but noted he expected both the US and Australia to act "in good faith".

I still don't understand the audacity of Malcolm Turnbull......
The refugees aren't acceptable into Australia and yet he expects other countries to take his "rubbish" ?

The deal was done with Barack Obama.
Labor had a deal for them to go to Malaysia didn't they?
A two for one offer. we would send one termite there and take two in exchange?
It is bipartisan policy to never let them in..ever. :character-oldtimer: :character-oldtimer:

TRUMP: Why haven't you let them out? Why have you not let them into your society?

The bloke ain't so dumb after all.

Terra, agree with your sentiments but disagree with your choice of words.
Refugees are not 'our rubbish', but rather some very unfortunate people caught
in the quagmire of political incorrectness!

:icon_biggrin: :icon_biggrin: :icon_biggrin:

Trump stopped the TPP by accident and not because he is so clever.
He just did not understand how it was going to affect the USA.
I am glad he stopped it for us, it would have been a very costly experience for Australia!

And hows this for blatant corruption, Andrew Robb
resigned from Parliament only to walk into a company
that had vested interests in the TPP and not a damned
thing was done about it. Is it any wonder people get sick
and tired of blatant corruption.
