U.S. President Donald Trump is hosting Malaysia's scandal-tainted Prime Minister Najib Razak and praising his country's investment in the United States and the fight against terrorism.

The Malaysian Embassy would not confirm to the outlet that Najib and his contingent spent the night at the hotel, where the "Trump Townhouse" suite goes for more than $18,750 per night. Trump said the deal is worth $10 billion to $20 billion.

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's highly anticipated meeting with United States president Donald Trump is underway.

"No prime minister of Malaysia in the past 60 years had to face such phalanx of worldwide media hostility or avalanche of adverse press publicity both in the United States and the world", he said in a statement.
