As Hollywood had its big night at The Oscars, Donald and Melania Trump hosted their own black-tie affair.
The Trumps chose the theme “Spring’s Renewal” for the annual Governors Ball, which took place at the White House on February 26, coincidentally during The Oscars.
The White House announced the theme of the dinner earlier in the day, saying that the mansion has “come to life, gleaming with the dazzling, senorial experience of eternal spring.”
During his speech, Donald touched on health care and was optimistic about a replacement to Obamacare and previewed his address to Congress on February 28.
He also commented on the attendance of the governors in the room and boasted about that he has already kept a lot of the promises that he made on the campaign trail.
Earlier in the week on February 22, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that the Trumps wont be tuning into The Academy Awards because of the event in Washington D.C.
The president will be hosting the Governors Ball that night. The first lady has put a lot of time into this event, welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital. I have a feeling that’s where the president and first lady are going to be focused on Sunday night.
The tradition of hosting the nation’s governors and their spouses is an annual occurrence and typically happens in accordance with the National Governors Association Winter Meeting.
Donald said earlier in the day on Twitter that there was a lot to talk about at the Governors Ball, and politics don’t seem to be off the table.
