Watch Live: Trump, Australian Prime Minister Talk Trade During White House Press Conference

More than a year since the two world leaders reportedly engaged in a heated exchange that ended with President Trump angrily hanging up the phone, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his wife are visiting the White House – and the two leaders are holding a joint press conference this afternoon.

The event begins at 2 pm. Watch live below:

Trump met Turnbull briefly when the two leaders boarded a US military ship the USS Intrepid. Turnbull later used this meeting as grist for a few jabs at Trump that leaked to the media last year. Trump is trying to safeguard the special relationship between the US and Australia and repair the damage caused by the US withdrawing from the TPP.
