Trump and Trumble: Australian PM to meet US President

PRIME Minister Malcolm Turnbull will meet US President Donald Trump next week, with the sit down confirmed by the White House.

The president and Australian leader -- who was notoriously described as "Trumble" by White House spokesman Sean Spicer -- will meet aboard the USS Intrepid in New York.

The meeting will coincide with the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea.

"The president looks forward to meeting the prime minister and showcasing the enduring bonds, deep friendship and close alliance the US has with Australia," Mr Spicer told media.
