Australia’s next PM once described Donald Trump as ‘barking mad’

Report from China…

Turnbull described Shorten’s swipe at Trump as evidence that the Labor leader wasn’t fit to lead Australia.

Turnbull accused Shorten of potentially offending Australia’s most important strategic ally by breaking a long-standing Australian convention of avoiding taking sides in US political contests.

Shorten had told a Darwin radio station that a Trump administration was among ‘the sort of scenarios you hope don’t emerge’. ‘I think Donald Trump’s views are just barking mad on some issues’.
