- Mr Turnbull was replaced in August by the conservative wing of the liberal party
Peter Dutton said that the liberal party would almost be wiped out with Malcolm Turnbull at the helm.
& # 39; If Malcolm Turnbull was still a leader, we would have been destroyed & # 39 ;, he told the Pine Rivers Press.
& # 39; We would have Bill Shorten in power and our country would be on its way to disaster. & # 39;

Mr Turnbull was replaced in August by the conservative wing of the Liberal Party, who feared that the government's drive to the left would harm its chances of election.
Dutton was seen as the conductor of the coup and has publicly criticized Mr Turnbull before.
Earlier this year, Mr. Dutton told the Sunday Mail: & # 39; Malcolm is charming and friendly, but he has no political bone in his body. & # 39;
He also criticized the way Mr Turnbull came up and approached the country's top task, claiming that he had not drawn up an action plan after coming to power.
& # 39; In 2016, Malcolm had the worst campaign in the history of the Liberal Party, and we eventually lost 15 seats and were left with a majority of one seats that just made Parliament unmanageable. We were paralyzed, & said Mr. Dutton.
& # 39; Countless possibilities to strengthen the government or the Shorten jeans came by because Malcolm was unable to make a decision. & # 39;
This attitude became even worse when the former Immigration Minister drew his attention to the recent Wentworth mid-term election, a one-off liberal fortress.
Instead of shedding support behind the party's candidate, Dave Sharma, Mr. Turnbull kept his mouth shut during the closing of the race.
According to Dutton, this behavior was worse than what Kevin Rudd showed during the Labor Party leadership crises in early 2010.
After his decline, Mr. Turnbull remained positive about the government he left behind.

& # 39; It may surprise you on a day like this, but I remain very optimistic and positive about the future of our nation and I want to thank the Australian people, & # 39; he said.
After the coalition victory, he fished for Mr Dutton.
& # 39; Scott (Morrison) has won an overwhelming victory, it was an excellent personal victory … I have been in contact with him and immediately congratulations, & # 39; Mr. Turnbull said, walking toward his car.
& # 39; I am very happy that during that terrible time in August he passed the prime ministership instead of Peter Dutton, of which you may remember that he wanted to be behind the PM uprising.
& # 39; So Scott was not their choice, but he did an excellent job and I congratulate him and wish him all the best. & # 39;
