Donald Trump: Scott Morrison is a man of titanium

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Donald Trump share a joke during speeches

US President Donald Trump has warmly greeted Prime Minister Scott Morrison and labelled him a "man of titanium", as he reaffirmed the close US-Australia ties.

Donald Trump has dubbed Prime Minister Scott Morrison a "man of titanium" in their first meeting in the president's Oval Office.

In a reference to George W. Bush's "man of steel" label for John Howard, the last Australian leader to be honoured with a full state visit to the United States, Mr Trump picked a harder metal.

"You know, titanium's much tougher than steel," he told reporters at the White House on Friday as Mr Morrison and their wives Melania Trump and Jenny Morrison looked on.
