On Thursday morning, The Washington Post published an annotated transcript of President Donald Trump's call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull a week after his inauguration.
Mr Turnbull tried a more diplomatic tack, telling the President: "Thank you for your commitment".
A White House account of the Trump call released at the time said only that the two leaders had "emphasized the enduring strength and closeness of the US-Australia relationship".
"This is going to kill me", he said to Turnbull on January 27 during a conversation he described as "the worst call by far" during his nascent presidency, the Washington Post reported, citing a transcript. I am doing this because Obama made a bad deal. During the conversation, Trump told Turnbull that the call was his "most unpleasant call" of the day, the transcript said.
"You can not say that to the press", Trump told Pena Nieto according to the transcript of the January 27 call published by the Post on Thursday.
"(But) if you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I can not live with that", Trump said. "You are worse than I am".
"Can you hear me out Mr President?" he said early in the call.
"This is a stupid deal. Who are they? Where do they come from?' Mr Trump asked, before questioning if a refugee excepted into the country could 'become the Boston bomber in five years".
Turnbull then tries to explain the details of the deal, repeating over and over again that it does not obligate the United States to take any refugees, only to go through the process of vetting them.
Turnbull tries to appeal to Trump the dealmaker again: "But can I say to you, there is nothing more important in business or politics than a deal is a deal".

The suspect is described as 186m tall with brown short hair - contrary to a previous police statement that he was bald. The company doesn't know yet whether the other three wounded people were customers or passers-by, she added.
He added that Australia would act in good faith and allow the USA to make its own decisions based on the vetting, as had always been the conditions of the deal.
"That is enough, Malcolm".
The President also boasted of his electoral victory, "They said I had no way to 270 and I got 306 (electoral colleges) and spoke in his trademark blunt style throughout the conversation".
"I have had it", Trump says.
It unclear from the transcript whether this occurs, though the call does appear to end abruptly.
The President wrapped up the hour long call after just 24 minutes, even saying his chat with Russian President Vladimir Putin was more pleasant than speaking with the PM.
Mr Trump then said: "Well, it is close".
In other leaked transcripts, Mr Trump told Mexico's President Pena Neito he did "not want to meet with you guys" if Mexico would not pay for the border wall. Putin was a pleasant call.
It's quite obviously a call between an experienced politician (Turnbull) and a political neophyte.
