"They're very different countries with very different sets of problems", Trump said.

President Donald Trump holds a joint news conference Friday afternoon as Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull visits the White House. But he also said that Australia's history with gun control was "very different" to America's.

"We will be there", he said when asked if he would like to visit Australia.

Turnbull and Barack Obama agreed to send 1,200 refugees who arrived in Australia by boat.

"American leadership in the world is in our interests, but it's in yours too", Turnbull told a meeting of USA governors.

Australia and the other remaining members of the pact published an amended version of the agreement this week and are expected to sign the new deal in March.

While bragging about his "extraordinary" personal relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump pushed Beijing, a non-TPP party, to reduce its massive and chronic trade surplus with Washington.

"I think you have to just make the case that more trade means more jobs, more investment, more exports". "So much, it's no good". "But ... that is not accurate".

He said it has resulted in an increased interest on the part of USA governors for direct ties with foreign officials.

"That can be the only thing that can get in the way of a truly long-term great relationship, because we have all the ingredients for friendship", he said.

This was Mr Turnbull's first visit to the White House since their now infamous phone call previous year when Mr Trump reportedly declared his conversation with the prime minister as his "worst call by far".

Turnbull praised Trump's recent tax cuts for businesses, something he is trying to replicate in Australia although he is struggling to gain the support needed from opposition parties.

Mr Trump said the USA and China had a very strong relationship, but warned lopsided trade between the two countries was a risk. "But I think we're well on the way to solving that awful problem that happens far too often in the United States", Mr Turnbull said.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has arrived at the White House for meetings with President Donald Trump.

Mr Turnbull emphasised the "hundred years of mateship" between Australia and the U.S. since soldiers from both countries fought together on the western front in France in 1918.

Turnbull said they have improved their tax situation, but have more left to do.

Both leaders dismiss speculation that their relationship had been damaged by that telephone call.

The president and First Lady Melania Trump met the prime minister and wife Lucy Turnbull on the South Lawn of the White House on Friday.

Mr. Turnbull said that it wasn't his place to advise Mr. Trump on gun control.
