Comey says US presidents — including Trump — are too busy to ‘screw up’ their relationship with Australia

President Donald Trump, like all US presidents, doesn’t have the ability to destroy the country’s relationship with Australia, former FBI Director James Comey said.
The relationship would be hard to “screw up” because presidents simply don’t have “enough time.”
Trump reportedly hung up on Australia’s prime minister shortly after taking office describing the call as the “worst” he’d had, but the two leaders seem to have since built a rapport.

US presidents, including Donald Trump, are simply too busy to mess up the US-Australia relationship, according to former FBI Director James Comey.

In an interview with “7.30” on Australia’s national broadcaster that aired Thursday night, Comey told host Leigh Sales that the alliance between the two countries is far greater than any one president and that the US should still be considered a reliable and trustworthy partner under Trump.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
