Washington Post:  Transcripts of Trump’s calls with Mexico and Australia

Quote

The Washington Post has obtained transcripts of two conversations President Trump had with foreign leaders: one with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and another with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Malcolm Turnbull, Australian Prime Minister:

Quote

In order to stop people smugglers, we had to deprive them of the product.  So we said if you try to come to Australia by boat, even if we think you are the best person in the world, even if you are a Noble [sic] Prize winning genius, we will not let you in.

Quote

The problem with the boats it that you are basically outsourcing your immigration program to people smugglers and also you get thousands of people drowning at sea. So what we say is, we will decide which people get to come to Australia who are refugees, economic migrants, businessmen, whatever. We decide. That is our decision. We are a generous multicultural immigration nation like the United States but the government decides, the people’s representatives decides.

I found the conversation with Turnbull particularly interesting.  He mentions "what has happened in Germany" and Brexit.
