President Trump and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull delivered a joint press conference Friday, addressing gun control, North Korea, immigration and more.

Why it matters: This was the first time in over a month that the president took questions from the press in a formal setting. The most recent conference before this was with Norway's Prime Minister Erna Solberg in early January. Trump's last individual press conference was over a year ago, on February 16, 2017.
