Singapore Prime Minister concluded his first official visit to the White House since President of the United States of America Donald took office.

President and PM Lee reaffirmed the relationship between the US and Singapore at the meeting, where the POTUS claimed that the US-Singapore relationship has “never been closer than now” and “won’t ever be stronger.”

After exchanging pleasantries, the world leaders observed a contract signing between Singapore Airlines and Boeing over a US$13.8 billion deal for the purchase of 39 aircrafts. They proceeded to the Rose Garden later for a joint press conference.

Interestingly, the comments section of a video of the joint conference uploaded on YouTube has provided endless laughs for Singaporeans, since some Americans lauded PM Lee on his English and for not speaking in his native language.
