At shortly after 11:00 the pool entered the now familiar bilateral meeting room, where Indonesian and US delegations, led by Jokowi and POTUS, were seated.

POTUS began by saying it was a "great honor" to meet him, noting re Indonesia,  that the "country is doing extremely well" and joking that probably has a lot to do with leadership "do you agree?" he said smiling at Widodo.

"We're going to do a lot of trade deals" President Trump continued, noting that bilateral trade was relatively limited. "We are going to do a lot of business."

Jokowi spoke in English, wishing Trump "warm greetings" from his "millions of fans" in Indonesia.

He said they all want to know is when Trump will go there.

"We'll get there, we'll get there. It's a place I'd like to go," POTUS responded.

After that brief exchange the pool was led out.
