Watch live: Trump hosts press conference with Italian prime minister

President Trump and Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Monday will participate in a joint press conference at the White House.

Conte backed Trump's call last month to reinstate Russia to the Group of Seven, leading Trump to say the Italian leader would be “honored in Washington, at the White House, shortly.”

The event is scheduled to take place in the White House Rose Garden at 2 p.m.
