President Trump says his family has decided a name for a horse that the Mongolian government is giving its son Barron.
Trump told reporters that he is expected to remain in the host country & # 39; Victory & # 39; while he welcomed Mongolian President Khaltmaa Battulga to the White House.

President Trump says his family has decided a name for a horse that the Mongolian government is giving its son Barron
Battulga & # 39; s administration had asked the first family name for the ros that it presented to the president's 13-year-old son as a symbol of the friendship of the nations.
Country leaders offer traditionally visiting dignitaries a Mongolian horse – a breed made famous by Ghangis Khan – during a cultural ceremony during the visit to the nation.
Former US defense secretaries Chuck Hagel and Donald Rumsfeld were once gifted bulls, just like former vice president Joe Biden.
Biden received his during a trip to Ulaanbataar in 2011, where he met the then Mongolian prime minister Sukhbaatar Batbold.
It is unlikely that the young Trump son will ever meet the cool horse that lives in Mongolia
Unlike Biden, it is unlikely that the young Trump son will ever meet his gift horse, given the distance between the US and the country that lies between Russia and China.
The 13-year-old still has to travel abroad with his parents, and his father can never travel to the country with a population less than half the size of New York City while in office.
Mongolia could one day serve as a backdrop for a meeting between Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un – the country offered to organize such a meeting between the leaders and was considered a top choice for their first summit.
National security adviser John Bolton happened to be in Mongolia at the time of Trump & # 39; s spontaneous meeting with Kim earlier this summer in North Korea.
Visits between the presidents of Mongolia and the United States have been scarce. The last one came seven years ago, in 2011, when Barack Obama was president.
Joe Biden received a gift horse in 2011 when he visited Mongolia as vice president. He was seen here with the horse during that visit

The Mongolian Prime Minister met with US Vice President Mike Pence in Washington and last year spoke briefly with President Donald Trump at the United Nations General Assembly.
The relatively new democracy – it gave up Communism in the 1990s – has reason to impress Trump. The US exports 121 million goods to the country that ships around 90 percent of its goods through China.
An American official told reporters during a Tuesday call that the purpose of the last visit is that the Trump government wants to start talking about and looking for ways to diversify their trade flows. to reduce dependence on China.
