Taking to social media the MP shared the picture of herself not only with Donald Trump but with the first lady Melania too.

Talking to news.com Bishop said she spoke to the President about his speech and North Korea. While she said it was a private conversation she did share some of what they talked about.

“We had a rather detailed discussion on what options are available to the international community and what is Kim Jong-un’s endgame,” Bishop said.

“We discussed specifically the issue with North Korea and the illegal behaviour of Kim Jong-un’s regime in its continual defiance of UN Security Council resolutions.”

Bishop has been certainly rubbing shoulders with the big names in politics.

She also shared a photo of her meeting with UK Prime Minister Theresa May and well as a number of other dignitaries attending the event.

It follows her earlier Instagram posts with Queen Rania Al Abdullah as they presented awards to winners of the MIT Solve Challenge Finals in New York City.

Is it nice to see behind the scenes at major events like these?
