President Donald Trump has spent much of the past few days hosting other world leaders. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau all paid visits to the White House this week.
Elsewhere in politics, Prime Minister Trudeau took his first official trip to Germany, and actor Ashton Kutcher spoke to the Senate -- and blew a kiss to Senator John McCain.
