Washington, D.C; Canberra
What most people miss in this Trump-Turnbull nontroversy (and now, Turnbull has come out and said that the end of the conversation wasn’t really that abrupt or hostile), is that they disputed over a deal that Turnbull swung with Obama not that long ago for the United States to take in Australian immigrants.
To the extent that most people actually get that far in the story, they think that we’re admitting more people like Greg Norman. In reality, what is meant by “Australian immigrants” in this context, I suspect, are: (1) Black Africans who traveled to Australia and tried to gain refugee status using some fake pretense that was either immediately or later discovered as fake, and/or (2) The boat people whom the Australian Navy divert to nearby islands.
Trump is obviously not too happy and wants to back out of the deal.
Nobody ever thinks to return these people from whence they came?
And what’s with this global game of hot potato of white countries constantly unloading non-white immigrants off on each other?
