This morning, Labour Leader and Prime Minister-elect Jacinda Ardern received a call from US President Donald Trump congratulating her on the outcome of the New Zealand election.
Ms Ardern said that the President was genuinely interested in our election, and spoke about the coverage it had received in Washington DC.
“We are likely to meet at APEC, where I look forward to carrying on talks around our role in the Asia Pacific region, and our commitment to a strong relationship with the United States. The President also asked that I pass on his warm regards to the people of New Zealand,” she said.
