It has been over a year since US President Donald Trump and Melania Trump, the first lady, hosted their first official state dinner. Australian prime minister is scheduled for September 20 to pay an official visit to Washington DC, according to CNN news reports.
In an official statement, the White Hosue said, “The President and first lady will welcome Prime Minister and Mrs. Morrison of Australia to the White Hosue on September 20, 2019, for an official visit, which will include a State Dinner.”
The White House statement was announced by Stephanie Grisham, the House press secretary. Morrison’s visit is being termed as “official” but not a “state” because Morrison is technically not the head of the state of the nation, but belongs to Queen Elizabeth.
The Trump’s first State Dinner was held at the White House in honour of State visit of French President Emmanuel Macron and Mrs Brigitte Macron. It occurred in April 2018, and highlighted around 120 welcomed guests, a full feast of regular American and French-affected dishes, cream and gold shading plan for the stylistic theme, with white floral focal points on each table and a presentation from the Washington National Opera.
“Mrs. Trump selected every item and every detail for the dinner, from the entrée to the chair cushions,” White House social secretary Rickie Niceta told CNN news.
