The Trump administration has announced that the Australian Prime Minister will be the guest of honor for President Trump's second state dinner since taking office.

The first was held for France in 2018.

According to The Hill:

President Trump will host Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison in September for the administration's second state dinner, the White House announced Monday.

"The visit will celebrate our two countries’ close friendship and shared history, and reaffirm our common vision for global peace, security, and prosperity," the White House said in a statement.

Morrison and his wife will visit the White House on Sept. 20. He will be the second world leader Trump has welcomed for a state dinner, which is typically reserved for close allies. The first was French President Emmanuel Macron in April 2018.

Morrison, who like Trump ran a populist conservative campaign, scored a surprise victory in May to win a three-year term as prime minister amid expectations that his coalition would lose seats.

The event will be aimed at celebrating the bond between the United States and Australia.
