President Trump will be holding a press conference Friday afternoon as he welcomes the Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison to Washington. The two sat for questions from reporters earlier during a meeting in the Oval Office.

Reporters will probably pepper the president with questions on a range of topics, including allegations that the president and/or his allies leaned on the Ukrainian government to investigate Joe Biden and members of his family, along with questions about the trade war with China.

Watch live below:

This will be the first time the Australian leader, who has only been in office since August 2018, has appeared with Trump. Later Friday evening, Morrison and his family will join the First Family for a state dinner. Trump and Morrison also took questions from the press briefly during a meeting in the Oval Office.
