President Trump, speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, told the crowd they shouldn’t worry about the “tough phone calls” he’s making to world leaders.
Trump expressed his intent to end other countries’ exploitation of the United States: “We have to be tough. It’s time we’re going to be a little tough folks, we’re taken advantage of by every nation in the world virtually. It’s not going to happen anymore.”
Trump also warned that “the world is under serious, serious threat,” but reassured the crowd that his administration would “straighten it out.”
Trump’s comments came the same day as reports that he engaged in a “heated exchange” with the prime minister of Australia, a longtime trusted ally of the United States. The disagreement, which took place on Saturday, reportedly centered on Trump’s refugee ban.
