Revealed: The two letters Donald Trump has sent to Jacinda Ardern

Official documents released to Newshub show US President Donald Trump has written to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern twice this year.

Waitangi Day sparked letter number one, where Mr Trump wrote to recognise February 6 - the day we celebrate the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.

"Ties between our great nations are strong. Over the past year our peoples, our companies, and our governments have worked together to build friendships, expand economic opportunities, and tackle the most challenging global issues," he wrote.

"More Americans and New Zealanders travel between our two countries than ever before, trade is at an all-time high, and our governments partner to create a prosperous and secure Indo-Pacific region."

Ms Ardern also received a holiday greetings card from The White House.

It was signed not only by Donald Trump but by his wife, First Lady Melania - and son Barron too.

Jacinda Ardern has written to President Trump once, but the letter hasn't been made public because it would "prejudice the international relations of the Government of New Zealand".

So we'll never know whether or not Mr Trump got a Happy Independence Day message.
