DUBAI: Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull mocked US President Donald Trump Wednesday in front of a crowd of journalists and politicians.
Audio of the leader poking fun at Trump at the Australian Parliament’s annual Midwinter Ball was leaked by Australia’s Channel Nine.
Turnbull used his recent meeting with the US president in New York as fodder for his speech.
“It was beautiful. It was the most beautiful putting-me-at-ease ever,” he told the crowd, poking fun at Trump’s much-parodied slogans.
"The Donald and I, we are winning and winning in the polls. We are winning so much, we are winning, we are winning like we have never won before," he added.
The Midwinter Ball is a major event in the Australian capital, Canberra.
The prime minister’s speech is supposed to be off-the-record but the news channel decided to air it after parts of the speech were posted to social media.
