President Trump met with the president of Argentina during the first day of the G20 summit. Argentina’s leader thanked President Trump for his visit and for his support of the South American nation.
The president has voiced his support for Argentina after the country secured a financing deal through the International Monetary Fund to help turn around its economy.
President Trump said he and the Argentine president will talk about a variety of issues, including trade.
“We’ve known each other a long while,” he stated. “We’re going to be talking about lots of good things for Argentina, for the United States, including trade, including military purchases and other things, but we have a lot to talk about, a little bit old times, but 95-percent business, I would say.”
The president has had a long-standing relationship with Argentina’s leader prior to their time in politics.
