Australia’s ambassador to the US Joe Hockey was waiting for him on the tarmac where a red carpet had been rolled out ahead of a ceremonial welcome.

The national anthems of both countries were played by a military band before the couple made their way to a podium for a brief press conference.

‘Here we are in the land of the free, the home of the brave,’ Mr Morrison said.

‘Firstly, to honour and celebrate 100 years of mateship and I particularly want to pay tribute to Ambassador Hockey and the tremendous work he’s done in his tending of that relationship here in this country. 

‘And that celebrating of that 100 years of mateship. But it’s also about laying the foundation for another 100 years. 

‘There are many larger, I suppose, more powerful friends that America has.

‘ But they know they do not have a more sure and steadfast friend than Australia so I’m looking forward to spending time with our American friends over the next few days and celebrating our tremendous relationship.

‘And whether it’s on our defence relationship, our security relationship, our economic relationship, our economic relationship, our partnerships around the world, whether in the Middle East or closer to home in the Indo Pacific, all of these things go together to have what, I think, is the best relationships of any two nations anywhere in the world.’

The Morrisons will be staying Blair House while in Washington.

The prime minister will meet with Mr Trump on Friday ahead of a state dinner later that night. 

Mrs Morrison has seen a stylish transformation since her husband was elected prime minister and Friday was no different.

She was recently praised for her style choices after she donned a silk green jumpsuit with a flattering gold necklace and a loose curl in her locks during the annual press gallery Midwinter Charity Ball this week. 

She might also have been influenced by her new fashionable friend Melania Trump, with the pair striking up an unlikely camaraderie at the G7 Summit in August.
