It's a "Victory" for President Trump's youngest son, Barron. The White House says Mongolia's government has gifted the 13-year-old with a horse, which has been named Victory. Press secretary Stephanie Grisham says the Trumps are "very grateful" for the horse, which will remain in Mongolia. Trump saw a photo and says the horse is "beautiful."

Trump and Mongolia's president, Khaltmaa Battulga, met at the White House on Wednesday. The country has a history of gifting its horses to dignitaries. Donald Rumsfeld and Chuck Hagel received horses when they visited the landlocked nation when they were US defense secretaries, as did then-Vice President Joe Biden, reports the AP. Mark Esper, Trump's new defense secretary, is scheduled to visit Mongolia next week as part of a trip to Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
