Donald Trump hosts ‘iftar’ evening meal for Muslim holy month of Ramadan

AKIPRESS.COM - President Donald Trump on Wednesday will host his first White House dinner for Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, an overture that has surprised many people in the Muslim community after he skipped hosting such a meal last year, Global News report.

The dinner comes as the Supreme Court considers legal challenges to Trump’s travel ban, which critics say unfairly targets some Muslim-majority countries. A ruling is expected as early as this month.

The White House was expected to release a list of attendees ahead of the iftar dinner, which breaks a daylong fast. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she expected about 30-40 people to attend.
