1. SOUNDBITE (English) Sean Spicer, White House Press Secretary:
"The president had a very cordial conversation with Prime Minister Turnbull (Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull), where they went through an extensive discussion of this deal. The president is unbelievably disappointed in the previous administrations deal that was made and how poorly it was crafted, and the threat to national security he put the United States under. He has tremendous respect for the prime minister and for the Australian people and has agreed to continue to review that deal, and ensure that as part of the deal, which was always part of it, that we would go through a very, very extreme vetting process, to ensure that every single person that is being offered up is coming here with peaceful intentions, and poses no threat to the United States. So he has ensured that while he has respect for the Australian people, and respect for Prime Minister Turnbull, that we do not pose a threat to the United States of America - that the deal that was cut with the last administration is something that he is extremely, extremely upset with. He does not like it, but out of respect for him he's going to allow that process, continue to study and allow to move forward, under the conditions that have been set. That there will be extreme vetting on every single one of those individuals."
