Watch live: The President greets Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway

President Donald Trump listens during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration policy in the Cabinet Room of the White House Tuesday Jan. 9 2018 in Washington

"We need the wall for security", Trump said.

Money talks, and it's something Trump respects.

Trump is expected to make pressure on Solberg to increase Norway's defense spending, according to CNN. Much of the debate is also tied to the constant messages he publishes on Twitter, in which he often blasts opponents and calls them names.

The White House has not issued a comment on the president's statement.

The Norwegian prime minister demurred, insisting that "This is an issue for American politics".

Defending his decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, Trump said his primary concern with the Paris climate accord was that it treated the USA unfairly and that if a better deal could be reached, Washington might be persuaded to rejoin.

It's one thing for Donald Trump to claim he's a "stable genius", but it's another to claim America sent Norway several fighter jets that don't exist. Their joint news conference is expected at approximately 2:20. Solberg said she also tried to appeal to his business sense when she tried to get him to reconsider his opposition to the UN's climate agreement struck in Paris. "That means that we have very strong policies for environmental-friendly and climate-friendly technology".

"Norway is a great customer, and a great ally and a great friend", Trump says.

Still, like other USA allies who share a border with Russia, Norway has been a critical U.S. partner in guarding against Russian aggression and relations between Norway and Russia have soured in recent years amid Russia's increasingly aggressive posture.

Queen's bra-fitter says she was stripped of royal warrant over memoir
While the company has held the United Kingdom royal warrant since 1960, she only took over the role in the 1980s. In the autobiography, Ms Kenton wrote about fitting the Queen , who reportedly had her corgis present.

President Donald Trump was talking about the delivery of fighter jets to Norway in an announcement at the White House on Wednesday, when he mistakenly referenced a plane that only exists in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Her welcome and their press conference received live and broad coverage back home.

Trump seemed to quickly catch his mistake, but did not fully correct it.

"There was absolutely no collusion".

She did note that green policies can lead to business opportunities, and noted that the USA company Tesla was selling many electric cars in Norway.

The theme of the talks between Trump and Solberg also covers defense and security policy and worldwide cooperation.

Solberg says Norway is "really appreciative of the good work that we have together with the United States". It put great penalties on us.

"We're going to do DACA, and then we can start immediately on the phase two, which would be comprehensive", Trump said in response to Feinstein.

When announcing the exit, Trump kept the door open to rejoining the pact "on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers". The first, most importantly, is whether the commander-in-chief of the U.S. Armed Forces has a full understanding of the military capacity at his command. He went on to thank the Prime Minister for troop and humanitarian assistance in the fight against terrorism and ISIS. Reciprocal trade, which benefits us all.
