President Trump appeared to be in disbelief Wednesday that the U.S. had agreed to resettle hundreds of refugees who are in Australia.

Trump’s tweet lashing out at the “dumb deal” came hours after a report that Trump’s phone call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull turned heated when the two discussed the refugee resettlement.

“Do you believe it? The Obama Administration agreed to take thousands of illegal immigrants from Australia. Why? I will study this dumb deal!” Trump wrote.

The Obama administration agreed last year to resettle refugees from an Australian detention center.

“This is the worst deal ever,” Trump told Turnbull, according to the Washington Post.

Shortly before Trump’s tweet on Australia, he alleged Iran is “rapidly taking over more and more of Iraq.”
