Malcolm Turnbull has apologised if he ‘disappointed’ anyone by giving money to a beggar in Melbourne this week.

The Prime Minister was photographed placing a $5 note into a cup beside a beggar in the CBD.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle has previously encouraged people to refrain from giving ‘misguided’ donations to those on the street.

‘It was a human reaction,’ Malcolm Turnbull said on 3AW Mornings.

‘I’m sorry if that’s disappointed some people.

‘I felt sorry for the guy.’

Speaking with Neil Mitchell, the Prime Minister also addressed;

  • The issues surrounding Vietnam veterans visiting Long Tan.
  • The budget.
  • Whether he’d seek to abolish the controversial 18C law.
