"After skipping it last year, President Donald Trump on Wednesday hosted an iftar dinner to honor the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, declaring it “a great month."

Around 50 people were at the White House dinner, including Vice President Mike Pence, several Cabinet secretaries, and ambassadors from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Indonesia.

“In gathering together this evening we honor a sacred tradition of one of the world’s great religions,” Trump said, speaking from notes. He added that Ramadan is a celebration of a “timeless message of peace, clarity and love. There is great love.”

U.S. presidents from both political parties have regularly hosted special iftar dinners in a tradition that dates to the Bill Clinton administration.

The White House did not immediately release a guest list on Wednesday night, and it did not reply to a query from POLITICO about how many U.S. Muslims were on it. But in a statement ahead of the dinner, it indicated that the invitees were largely foreign officials.

“Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramadan and is often done as a community, with people gathering to break their fast together,” the White House said. “Today at 8 p.m., President Trump will host an iftar dinner in the State Dining Room at the White House for the Washington diplomatic community.”

Trump, in his remarks, thanked several of his top aides for attending, including Pence, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. His son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, was also present.
