US President Donald Trump welcomed Australian Prime Minister and close ally Scott Morrison for a state dinner at the White House's Rose Garden on Friday evening.

The president and First Lady Melania Trump greeted Morrison and his wife Jenny in full black-tie. Prior to the banquet both leaders praised the long-standing friendship between the countries.

Morrison has received repeated praise from Trump since he became prime minister in August 2018 and won re-election in May 2019. Australia has been one of the US's steadfast allies over the years.
