Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull mocked President Trump during a private speech to journalists while doing an impersonation of the president. 

"The Donald and I, we are winning and winning in the polls,” he said Wednesday in a leaked video. “We are winning so much, we are winning, we are winning like we have never won before.”


Journalists who attended the event are supposed to agree not to report on it, but an editor at Australia’s Nine Network broke protocol and made the footage public.

"I have this Russian guy. … Believe me, it's true, it is true,” Turnbull added, alluding to the investigation into possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia. 

Turnbull told Melbourne Talk Radio the speech was light-hearted and a “good humored roast,” adding that people have “got to lighten up.”
