Trump Hosts Australian PM for Lavish White House State Dinner

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump and first lady Melania hosted Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife, Jenny, to a lavish state dinner in the White House on Friday.

The dinner was hosted outdoors in the iconic Rose Garden decorated with a carpet and circular and rectangular tables for the guests.

The menu included Tupinamba ravioli with Reggiano cream and sauteed vegetables. The second course had crunchy parsley, fennel mousseline, pumpkin and zucchini flowers, and garlic rouille.

Apple pie with calvados ice cream was served on dessert, paired with American sparkling wines.

According to Melania Trump’s office, the menu highlighted “the lush, late summer season across the vast lands of America.”

It, her office said, “pays homage to Australia’s special blend of culinary adaptations from its various cultures, not unlike the diverse food traditions of the United States.”

The US first lady chose a long dress by French designer J. Mendel for the evening.

The ceremony included Marine band performances of the national anthem of both countries. The entertainment part also featured musical groups from the US Army, Navy, and Air Force.

Morrison is the second world leader to be hosted for a state dinner during the nearly three years of Trump administration. French President Emmanuel Macron was feted last year in April.

The day began with the traditional welcome ceremony for Morrison’s state visit in the South Garden of the White House.

The President and the First Lady welcomed the Australian prime minister and his wife.

“The Trump administration is proud to carry on the traditional military arrival ceremony, which has been part of our nation’s history for centuries,” Melania’s office noted,

Nearly 500 members of the US Armed Forces from the five military branches were present on the South Lawn for the “Review of the Troops.”

Those invited to attend the arrival ceremony included the President’s Cabinet, Members of Congress, military families, and guests of the Australian Embassy.

Trump and Morrison later held a meeting and a joint press conference.
