Australia Banishes Refugees To Island Detention Camps, And Trump’s The Meanie?

President Donald Trump was apparently too mean to Australia, a country that ruthlessly banishes refugees to island detention camps, if it doesn’t simply let them drown.

Trump “badgered” and “bragged” rudely to Turnbull, WaPo reported, portraying Trump as unreasonable and giving Turnbull a friendly pass from obvious criticisms.
