Australian news journalist Jonathan Swan (and son of the esteemed Dr Norman Swan) has gone viral for his truly wild interview with US President Donald Trump.

Sitting down for an interview with Trump, Swan – who is a journalist at news outlet AXIOS and reportedly friends with the President – has become an instant internet sensation thanks to his hard-hitting interview with Trump.

The US President is famous for skirting around tough questions and offering answers that when you listen carefully, really don’t make a whole heap of sense.

Yet unlike many American reporters, Swan wasn’t impressed with Trump’s nonsensical answers and continued to push and probe the President on responses that were illogical.

Take a look for yourself below.

Australians, unsurprisingly, were full of praise for Swan, with ABC presenter Leigh Sales tweeting: “@jonathanvswan has nailed the tone, the questions, the calling out of BS. It’s great journalism but it’s also massively entertaining.”

Swan has also become somewhat of an internet meme.

You can watch the full 37 minute interview here.
