Trump upbeat on meeting with Australian PM

"A lot of good things will come out of this", the president said.

But it seems all was forgotten on Friday afternoon local time when the two leaders announced the U.S. would be naming one of its combat ships the USS Canberra after Australia's capital.

The leaders spoke in the Oval Office during a portion of the meeting that was open to US and Australian journalists.

Trump made the announcement Friday as he opened a White House news conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull after a day of meetings.

Turnbull noted that Australian business leaders were creating jobs both in Australia and the United States, "demonstrating that our two great nations are committed to competition, to freedom, to economic innovation, science and technology. and that's why we're seeing strong job growth in both countries".

President Donald Trump continued his calls to arm more teachers with guns to protect schools in a joint news conference with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Friday.

"We will hopefully follow in your footsteps", Trump, talking about immigration policies, said.

Government did nothing despite Nirav alert in 2016: Congress
This was after the $1.8 billion (Rs 11,000 crore) fraud was detected at one of the Mumbai branches of PNB recently. Numerous banks receiving huge capital infusions are exposed to companies that have entered bankruptcy proceedings.

Washington will honour the deal to take up to 1,250 asylum-seekers held in Australian detention centres on remote Pacific islands, so Trump and Turnbull will now seek to find common ground on China and the Trans-Pacific trade pact, which aims to cut barriers in some of the region's fastest-growing economies.

Officials say Trump exploded and hung up after he was told about a Barack Obama-era deal to move refugees from Australia to America.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump greeted Turnbull Friday at the south entrance of the White House.

This year marks the centennial of the Battle of Hamel, on France's Western Front, when troops from both countries fought under Australian command. The prime minister predicted 100 more years of friendship to come.

The pair have met since the infamous call, most notably in May aboard the Intrepid, moored in NY.

At a meeting in the Oval Offiice the two men discussed military and security cooperation and trade.

The Prime Minister is commemorating a century of "mateship" with the US.
