The president is set to host the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, at the White House Tuesday morning.
Previous reports said that following the one-on-one meeting the two would be joined by USA vice president Mike Pence, state secretary Rex Tillerson and other senior White House leaders.
The visit is important for Najib, who faces elections next year and wants to signal he is still welcome at the White House despite a criminal probe by the U.S. Justice Department into a state fund called 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB).
Mr. Najib also said the Employees Provident Fund, a major pension fund in Malaysia, planned to invest $3 billion to $4 billion in USA infrastructure projects. Najib founded the fund, which is facing money laundering probes in at least six countries including the United States, Switzerland and Singapore.
The U.S. Justice Department sued to seize some $1.7 billion in assets it said were bought with misappropriated 1MDB funds.

Trump also said Malaysia is a "massive investor in the United States in terms of stocks and bonds".
But the run-up to Najib's arrival has been dominated by questions about his entanglement in an ongoing US Justice Department investigation.
