President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May held a joint press conference on Friday, discussing the relationship between the two countries as well as US foreign policy in Europe.

The Q&A had a lighthearted moment when Trump called on Reuters’ Jeff Mason to ask his question. Watch the humorous exchange in the video below.

Here’s how it all unfolded:

President Trump: Next question.

Jeff Mason: Jeff Mason, from Reuters.

Trump: I like your hat.

Mason: Thank you sir. [Laughter]

Trump: You look good without it too, good head of hair. Good, solid head of hair.

Mason: It’s that I don’t have a good, solid head of hair, but thank you, sir.

Trump: I know, I know. I know exactly what you have, Jeff.

Mason: [Laughs] Going into your meeting…

Prime Minister Theresa May: Why don’t you reveal it to the rest of us…

Trump: Come on, Jeff, take it off. Will you show, please?

[Fox News’ John Roberts removes Mason’s hat, revealing his bald head.]

Trump: I like you better without the hat. Go ahead.

Mason: There we go. [Removes hat and sets it on his lap.]

Also in the same press conference, President Trump and CNN’s Jim Acosta had an exchange where Trump refused to take Acosta’s question, calling CNN “Fake news.”
