Donald Trump and Malcolm Turnbull's phone call that reportedly ended abruptly has been met with ridicule on social media.

The Prime Minister and President were speaking about a proposed asylum seeker deal that would see the U.S. take in 1,250 refugees from Australia's offshore detention centres on Nauru and Manus Island, Daily Mail reports.

But a fuming President Trump reportedly told Mr Turnbull the conversation was "the worst call by far" he had taken that day and accused the Prime Minister of looking to ship off the "next Boston bombers" to the US.


After news emerged, people from around the world have brought out the best memes in response to the encounter between the two leaders whose first official television conversation ended just after 25 minutes.
