For the first time in two decades, the White House did not host a Ramadan dinner







Instead, President Donald Trump and first lady Melania released a statement on Saturday wishing "warm greetings" to those celebrating Eid al-Fitr. The statement partly reads, 'muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity.
Breaking with tradition, the White House under President Donald Trump did not host an iftar dinner, the meal Muslims eat to break their daily fast during Ramadan.
The dinner, which has been often attended by prominent members of the U.S. Muslim community, began in 1996 during former President Bill Clinton’s White House tenure and continued throughout George W. Bush Jr . and Barack Obama's administrations.
The statement read in full:

"On behalf of the American people, Melania and I send our warm greetings to Muslims as they celebrate Eidal-Fitr. Muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity. Now, as they commemorate Eid with family and friends, they carry on the tradition of helping neighbors and breaking bread with people from all walks of life. During this holiday, we are reminded of the importance of mercy, compassion, and goodwill. With Muslims around the world, the United States renews our commitment to honor these values. Eid Mubarak".
