Trump to host state dinner for Scott Morrison in September

Scott Morrison will be heading to the US on an official visit in September that will include a state dinner, his office has confirmed. It is the first such invitation to an Australian prime minister since George Bush hosted John Howard in 2006.
Trump is to host the state dinner at the White House for Morrison following on from their meetings on the sidelines of the D-Day commemorations in the UK and the G20 summit this year.
Morrison has addressed US military personnel as part of the Talisman Sabre exercises in Queensland involving Australia, New Zealand, the US, the UK, Canada and Japan.
“Australia and the United States see the world through the same eyes,” he said on the deck of the USS Ronald Reagan.
“Or, as president Reagan put it, ‘We both recognise the responsibility of freedom and are prepared to shoulder it squarely’.”
