Trump praises Turnbull at White House

Trump praises Turnbull at White House

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has honoured the only Australian buried at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

After they sat down, a female is believed to have rammed a auto into a security barrier at 17th and E streets.

Diplomats - and even a mutual friend, golfer Greg Norman, who was at the White House on Friday - rushed to fix the damage.

No one was harmed in the breach and the woman was apprehended, the US Secret Service said in a statement.

Mr Trump and Mr Turnbull are also scheduled to hold a joint press conference on Friday afternoon (Saturday morning AEDT) where they will be quizzed by the White House press gallery and Australian reporters.

After plenty of legwork by Australian Ambassador to the US Joe Hockey, Mr Turnbull, the premiers and Australian business leaders will meet with more than 40 of America's state governors.

President Donald Trump has declared America's relationship with Australia is "stronger than ever before".

First Lady Melania Trump will host a separate lunch for Ms Turnbull.

"The leaders will celebrate 100 years of mateship through war, peace, and prosperity, charting the course for the coming century of partnership", the White House said.

Trade, security, North Korea and infrastructure opportunities in the USA and Australia are expected to be on the agenda for the president and prime minister.

President Trump touted the strong relationship between the US and Australia as the countries celebrate 100 years of working together since World War I.

"We have been fighting side-by-side in freedom's cause ever since". "100 more to come".

"Thank you and Melania for your hospitality and friendship", Mr Turnbull said.

He announced a littoral combat ship would be named the USS Canberra, after the Australian capital, which the U.S. president pronounced with a heavy emphasis on the second syllable.

Mr Trump said he was keen to visit Australia, saying it was "a great place".

From the moment Trump strode out to greet Turnbull on the South Lawn and they shared a side-by-side stroll along the colonnade to the Oval Office, it was clear the pair were ready to put on a show.

"We'll have to see", said Mr Trump, when asked if all options are still on the table if the sanctions don't work.
