  • President Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the United States

President Donald Trump praised Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak for his country's financial investments in US companies during a meeting Tuesday at the White House and thanked him for helping to fight Islamic State militants.

Senior opposition lawmaker Lim Kit Siang said many Malaysians viewed Najib's White House visit as a "national humiliation and shame" as he is tainted by the 1MDB financial saga.

Najib would present these facts during his meeting with President Donald J. Trump at the White House scheduled for Tuesday. He was sworn into the position on 3 April 2009 to succeed Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Prime Minister Najib founded the fund, which is facing money laundering probes in at least six countries including the United States, Switzerland and Singapore.

The South China Sea will also be part of the talks, as will trade and investment, Sanders said.

Previous reports said that following the one-on-one meeting the two would be joined by U.S. vice president Mike Pence, state secretary Rex Tillerson and other senior White House leaders.

Left unsaid by either leader: anything about the massive corruption scandal swirling around Najib's multibillion-dollar state fund. The airline's chief executive said in June that it was in early negotiations with Airbus (AIR.PA) and Boeing for the purchase of 35-40 new long-range jets. "He will also try to convey the impression that the US investigation on 1MDB has nothing to do with him", said James Chin, who heads the Asia Institute in Australia's University of Tasmania.

The U.S. Justice Department sued to seize some $1.7 billion in assets it said were bought with misappropriated 1MDB funds.

He said the two will also discuss trade, and even the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar.

Mr Najib said the 9/11 terror attacks not only changed the U.S. but the world as the assault was inspired by the same "false and poisonous ideology" spread by the global terror network known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria ― or its various acronyms ISIS, IS and Daesh.
