Pres. Trump to Meet With PM of Malaysia

12 Septembre 2017

Najib says he wants to help Trump strengthen the US economy.

US President Donald Trump will on Tuesday host Malaysia's prime minister in the White House for wide-ranging talks, giving his guest a welcome respite from a spiraling corruption scandal.
