(CNN) - Just when you thought President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull have patched things up, there's been an awkward turn.

In a leaked audio, the Australian prime minister can be heard poking fun at the U.S. president.

Turnbull was giving a speech at the Australian parliament's annual mid-winter ball, and he seemed to be mocking Trump's speaking style.

Turnbull and Trump met briefly in New York in May. Back then, the U.S. president described their relations as fantastic.

A few months before that, the men reportedly had a tense phone call, in which they clashed over a refugee deal struck under the Obama administration.
