The White House announced it is planning on hosting a Ramadan dinner at The White House.


President Donald Trump will host an iftar dinner at the White House next week to recognize the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, according to a White House official, a departure from last year’s decision not to host the traditional post-sundown meal.

The iftar dinner is scheduled for Wednesday. The White House official declined to provide a list of attendees.

Last year the Trump Administration chose not to host the dinner.
