Donald Trump called it a dumb deal but Malcolm Turnbull says the U.S. agreement to take 1250 refugees from Australia is his priority over New Zealand's offer to help 150.
Australia will continue to manage the refugee crisis which is teetering on a humanitarian crisis on Manus Island's detention center after declining New Zealand's offer to host 150 refugees.
Australia turned down on Sunday an offer to take 150 asylum seekers being held in an Australian-run detention center in Papua New Guinea, where United Nations officials have warned a humanitarian emergency is unfolding.
