S President Donald Trump has offered his "strong support" to Argentina, branding the Latin American country's crisis a "trying time," following a phone conversation with President Mauricio Maci this morning.

President Macri had a 15-minute conversation with his US counterpart this morning as the Argentine leader’s economic team heads to Washington for key talks with International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials.

The conversation, which took place at around 10am, took in the subject of Argentina’s ongoing economic turbulence and Trump’s scheduled visit to Buenos Aires at the end of November for the G20 leaders summit. Trump will fly to Argentina in the closing days of November and has accepted a state visit welcome, government officials say.

"This morning, I spoke with President of Argentina Mauricio Macri and reaffirmed the United States’ strong support for Argentina during this trying time for them," Trump said via a statement from the White House. "Argentina is a long-time strategic partner of the United States and a major non-NATO ally. President Macri is doing an excellent job with this very difficult economic and financial situation. I have confidence in President Macri’s leadership, and I strongly encourage and support his engagement with the International Monetary Fund to strengthen Argentina’s monetary and fiscal policies to tackle the country’s current economic challenges."
