A number of Caribbean heads of government, including Jamaican Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, in a preliminary exchange with US President, Donald Trump , ahead of formal discussion during their meeting in the US on Friday.

In a video released by Jamaica House of the opening exchanges between Jamaica's Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, and a number of other Caribbean leaders, during their meeting with United States President, Donald Trump on Friday, Holness was his usual nimble self at the table of discussion.
