FILE: President Donald J. Trump and Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni of Italy hold a joint press conference in the East Room of the White House, Thursday, April 20, 2017.

President Trump is holding a press conference at the White House with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

Conte's approach to government in Italy has been compared to that of Trump's approach in the United States. Italy has recently hardened its approach to immigration, for instance, and challenged European Union partners. Trump, for his part, has expressed support for Conte, at one point tweeting that “the people of Italy got it right!” Watch the 2 p.m. news conference live below.
