President Donald Trump on Wednesday said a horse symbolically gifted by Mongolia to Trump's 13-year-old son, Barron, has been named 'Victory.'

Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

The vast northern nation locked between Russia and China is known for its ancient breed of tough, tiny horses ridden by Genghis Khan and other warlords - and often gives horses to visiting dignitaries.

The horse is unlikely to make the long trip to the United States, a senior U.S. administration official told reporters, though Mongolian officials had been eager that it be given a name.

Other U.S. dignitaries to receive a symbolic horse in the past include former Vice President Joe Biden, and former defense secretaries Chuck Hagel and Donald Rumsfeld.
