Trump lauds 'special' bond with Morrison

They included lawyer and former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, cupboard secretaries, members of Congress and Australian friends together with legendary golfer Greg Norman. And the controversy intensified over a conversation Trump had with Ukraine's president.

The US First Lady, known for her tasteful fashion choices, opted for a J. Mendel green foam gown for the evening with transparent sleeves and a high neck.

It is adorned with inserted pleats and bias cut waves.

The Trumps welcomed the Morrisons earlier Friday for the state visit with a spirited arrival ceremony on the South Lawn.

A glittering array of American and Australian luminaries is streaming into the White House Rose Garden for a rare dinner under the stars, even as serious developments unfold for President Donald Trump at home and overseas.

The U.S. president highlights the staunch alliance between the two nations.

Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani was also among the more than 170 guests. That's the heart of a whistleblower complaint against the president.

"I'm looking forward to celebrating tonight", Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina said when he was asked about the day's breaking news.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has arrived for a glitzy White House state dinner honoring the land Down Under.

The menu features Dover sole entree and apple tart a la mode. Musical groups from the US Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force provided the entrainment.

In order to emphasize the success of PM Morrison, as he sees it, on the issue of job creation, Pratt compared the Australian Prime Minister with the biggest sporting icon his country has produced - Sir Donald Bradman.

In return, Morrison praised the primary girl's "quiet grace" and toasted to 100 years of "mateship" between the US and Australia.

Mrs. Trump's choice for Jennifer Morrison was a sterling silver and 18-karat gold Tiffany & Co.

He also praised Trump for what he said was a "restraint" in relation to Iran. "The other matters that are being pursued by the United States are matters that they're pursuing".

Trump, an avid golfer, says the PGA Tour has invited him to attend, and he described the tournament as "exciting".

"It's so attractive and it will be so different", Trump said earlier about his first state dinner in more than a year, noting that he had watched a rehearsal.

"Culturally we don't celebrate great business success".

Trump and Morrison later held a meeting and a joint press conference.

When it comes to state dinners, Trump seems to prefer being on the receiving end.

Morrison told the president in reply, "thanks mate".

The U.S. president had signaled he would raise with Morrison a possible military contribution in Iran, although later he said the topic had not been discussed.

"The world is a better place because of this country living out its moral objective - a world not just more secure, but more prosperous as well", Morrison said of America.

The president and Melania welcomed Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his spouse, Jenny, to the White Home on Friday.

Morrison is the second world leader to be hosted for a state dinner during the almost three years of Trump administration.

The dinner on Friday night was hosted outdoors in the iconic Rose Garden decorated with a carpet and circular and rectangular tables for the guests.
