Apparently it's only a problem if you're saying good things about Trump.

Here's Penny on Shorten on Trump, including during Shorten's visit to North America in September.  Shorten's next visit with the President of the United States might be a tad uncomfortable.

Bill Shorten blasts Donald Trump for taking political ‘low road’

 

BILL Shorten today drops all diplomatic niceties by declaring Donald Trump unsuitable to be leader of the free world.

And the Opposition Leader will urge Australia to deal with the “low road” politics and marginalised workers he says fuelled Mr Trump’s bid to be US president.

Mr Shorten last May called the Republican nominee “barking mad” on specific policy, and on Sunday condemned his boasts of sexual assault, but today goes further.

“But I know I am not the only one relieved that with every passing day, with every disgusting, demeaning comment Mr Trump makes, the possibility of him being president fades,” Mr Shorten says in a speech prepared for a CEDA conference keynote address.

“By his own words and his own actions, he has confirmed the worst fears of millions in the United States and beyond its borders — he is entirely unsuitable to be leader of the free world.”

The Labor leader says the Trump bid was a “campaign that began as a de facto reality TV show, grew into a circus and has now gone beyond farce”.

Linking Mr Trump’s support to the sentiment behind Britain’s Brexit vote, Mr Shorten says both were powered by “the people who have felt the rough edges of globalisation and economic change”, and had been “outsourced, downsized, rationalised”.

 

Bill Shorten steps up attack on Donald Trump

 
 

Denouncing Donald Trump has become a bipartisan activity in federal politics. On Tuesday, Bill Shorten is set to declare the Republican candidate “entirely unsuitable to be leader of the free world”.

After last week’s release of the 2005 video in which Trump talked in lewd and graphic terms about his pursuit of women, Malcolm Turnbull on Monday said the comments were “loathsome and they deserve the absolutely universal condemnation that they have received”.

The Australian leaders have become more outspoken as Trump’s behaviour becomes ever more outrageous and the revelations from his past increasingly shocking. When in May Shorten described Trump’s views as “barking mad” on some issues, he was criticised by Turnbull, who said Americans would be offended.

Though usually Australian leaders would be wary about being drawn into comment on US politics, such inhibitions are now gone – and any political risks for the future are reduced by the fact that Trump is considered to be headed for defeat.

Shorten on Tuesday will say that while the US alliance is bigger than any individual and stronger than any disagreement, “I know I am not the only one relieved that with every passing day, with every disgusting, demeaning comment Mr Trump makes, the possibility of him becoming president fades”.

“A campaign that began as a de-facto reality TV show, grew into a circus and has now gone beyond farce,” he will tell the Committee for Economic Development of Australia (CEDA).

“By his own words and his own actions, [Trump] has confirmed the worst fears of millions in the United States and beyond its borders – he is entirely unsuitable to be leader of the free world.”

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has renewed attacks on Donald Trump, breaking with diplomatic tradition to call the Republic presidential nominee "entirely unsuitable" to be leader of the free world.

A day after Mr Trump's combative and sometimes ugly second presidential debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Mr Shorten will tell a Committee for Economic Development of Australia conference that the race for the White House has gone from circus to farce, in part because of the New York businessman's demeaning rhetoric and behaviour.

Donald Trump is "entirely unsuitable" to be US President according to Opposition leader Bill Shorten. 

"Make no mistake, the US-Alliance is bigger than any individual and stronger than any disagreement," Mr Shorten will tell the conference in Canberra.

"But I know I am not the only one relieved that with every passing day, with every disgusting, demeaning comment Mr Trump makes, the possibility of him being president fades.

Labor leader to say Republican candidate has ‘confirmed the worst fears of millions’ in the US and beyond

Australia’s opposition leader, Bill Shorten, will declare that Donald Trump is “entirely unsuitable to be leader of the free world” in a speech to a Canberra conference on Tuesday.

The Labor leader will tell the Committee for Economic Development of Australia on Tuesday morning that Australia’s alliance with the US is “bigger than any individual and stronger than any disagreement”.

“But I know I am not the only one relieved that with every passing day, with every disgusting, demeaning comment Mr Trump makes, the possibility of him being president fades,” the Labor leader will say.

“By his own words and his own actions, he has confirmed the worst fears of millions in the United States and beyond its borders – he is entirely unsuitable to be leader of the free world.”

Shorten’s comments follow the rancorous second presidential debate in the US, in which Trump threatened to imprison his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s political fortunes seem to have flagged after the first face-off with Clinton and after revelations he made lewd remarks about women – but the Republican nominee has dug in and doubled down, trying to turn the political attack back on Clinton.
