TOKYO (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he would be interested in attending the Presidents Cup in Melbourne, ahead of a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison on the sidelines of the G20 summit meeting in Osaka, Japan.

Asked by a reporter if he would go to the premier golfing event, Trump, an avid golfer, said he wanted to but was noncommittal.

“I’ll tell you what – I’d like to,” Trump said. “It might not be easy, but I’d like to.”

Morrison offered Trump a “warm invitation” to the major golfing event, scheduled in early December.

The two leaders spoke ahead of a dinner meeting in Osaka.
