His unhappiness was on display when he tweeted, after the call with Mr Turnbull, that "I will study this dumb deal".
Under the subtitle: "President Trump Has Spoken To Sixteen Foreign Leaders And Has Emphasised His Priority Of American National Security" Spicer lists the world leaders his boss has graced with a presidential phone call since taking office, including "the British Prime Minister, Theresa May", the "Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi" and "The President of Australia".
Trying to end the hearsay about his conversation with President Trump and the growing unrest that Australians seem to be having towards politicians, Mr Turnbull appeared on 60 Minutes to talk about it all, or so we thought.
Mr Turnbull's relationship with President Donald Trump has been in the spotlight since the pair's first fractious phone call, which Mr Trump described as the "worst" of his discussions with world leaders.
I find that both un-American and un-Australian, a choice that destroys any faith I had in Turnbull's integrity.
Fresh from revelations about the stinging phone call between the Prime Minister and Mr Trump, and the President's concerns about the refugee swap that was signed off by former president Barack Obama, Mr Turnbull said there was no quid pro quo between the countries. According to Spicer, Trump has agreed to honor the deal made by the Obama administration about resettling 1250 asylum seekers that have been rejected by Australia.

Considering what a miserable job that establishment has done, especially in inner-city schools, her independence is a plus. DeVos answered Murphy's question by citing the example of a school in Wyoming that has a fence to keep out grizzly bears.
Despite Australia being one of America's "staunchest allies", White House Bureau Chief at The Washington Post Philip Rucker told the ABC that Mr Trump "doesn't really care so much that Australia is an ally over many, many years".
Labor frontbencher Andrew Giles said he was "so concerned ... about the utterances of President Trump because they do seem to be a threat to a rules-based global order".
It simply requires that the United States allow refugees to express an interest in being resettled there.
As Mr Turnbull is convinced that President Trump will honour the deal interviewer Laurie Oakes asked an important question, "What now if the Trump Administration comes to you and says, "we want troops for some Middle Eastern adventure" or "we want ships in the South China Sea"? And does he see you as indebted?"
"We took the plebiscite position to the election, that is our policy and we are calling on Bill Shorten to rethink his position and if he supports the plebiscite then it will pass through the senate and it will be held", Turnbull said.
"We assess all requests for military assistance on their merits".
