WASHINGTON (AP) — Tuesday's meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump and the leadership of three Baltic countries at the White House will celebrate the 100th anniversary of independence for Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

President Donald Trump will welcome President Kersti Kaljulaid of Estonia, President Raimonds Vejonis of Latvia and President Dalia Grybauskaite to the White House.
