Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who at times has had frosty relations U.S. President Donald Trump, received a pink Trump-branded tie on Sunday as a gift during a visit to a Coptic Orthodox church.

Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull was visiting a Coptic Church in Sydney yesterday where he was paying his respects to the victims of terror attacks, after a series of the Christian churches were bombed by Islamic State earlier this year.

His relationship with Mr Trump became a talking point after the U.S. president was reported to have abruptly ended a phone call between the two in January.

Visiting Australia, the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church Pope Tawadros II thought he would use his position as a man of God to end the "feud" between the United States and Australian leaders.

Mr Turnbull later disputed this and the pair are said to have repaired ties.

Mr Turnbull's famously hard first phone call with Mr Trump was the result of a discussion between the two leaders over a refugee resettlement agreement, which was initially made by former US President Barack Obama.

Last week, the White House brushed off news a leaked video of Turnbull making fun of Trump during a news media ball in the Australian capital Canberra that was supposed to have been off the record. You gotta lighten up right?
