Donald Trump has revealed Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison's wife Jenny made quite an impression on him on the red carpet in Washington.
The former nurse struck up quite a rapport with the US President in the lead-up to the state dinner in the White House rose garden - the first for an Australian PM in 13 years.
'Jennifer, his wife, is somebody that loves your country very much, I can tell you that,' President Trump told Sky News presenter Paul Murray on Saturday morning, Australian time. 'We spoke for a while and she truly loves your country.'

At the state dinner afterwards, Mrs Morrison dazzled in a black Carla Zampatti Royal Engagement halter gown with sequins that sells for $1,099 in Australia.
She had earlier worn another black Carla Zampatti number, this time a $1,000 Everlasting Love jumpsuit, as she emerged from the prime ministerial 'Shark One' plane in the United States.
Mrs Morrison is rather fond of Carla Zampatti outfits, at least when she is meeting with US First Lady Melania Trump.
Last month, she wore the designer's blush pink halter blouse with ivory trousers in France for the G7 summit at Biarritz.
'Mrs. Morrison has been a great supporter of Australian fashion and I am most thrilled that she arrived in Washington in one of my signature jumpsuits which are perfect choice for travelling and arriving in style,' she said.
President Trump and Mr Morrison both won elections, as conservative leaders, despite opinion poll predictions they would lose.
'Scott's a very strong man, a very good man and I think he's someone very much respected in your country and he had the kind of election I had so we have something in common,' he said
