In an air of elegance last night at the Governor’s Ball, an annual dinner for the President, Trump made a speech where he boasted that “we’ve accomplished almost everything we’ve started out to accomplish”.
The Governor Ball was Melania Trump’s first gig as hostess, as traditional for the first lady. The theme she showed was “Spring Renewal”.
President Trump stated in his speech, “As you know, we have a fantastic team. We have an A team and I’m getting some good reports. As you know there are some big problems in the world, you know that very well. But we are very happy with the way things are working… We’ve made a lot of promises in the last two years and many of those promises already are kept.”
The white house hosted 46 governors and their wives for a huge dinner event. President Trump promised to discuss healthcare during the meetings with the governors.
The Daily Mail has more:
President Donald Trump boasted that his administration had accomplished ‘almost everything we’ve started out to accomplish’ in a month as he proposed a toast at the Governors’ Dinner during Melania Trump‘s first big hosting gig.
He toasted the nation’s governors at the White House, joking with them that they have ‘such an easy job.’
During his opening speech, he did not mention the Academy Awards, which was taking place at the same time. He also failed to mention the White House Correspondents’ Dinner which he will not be attending this year.
Instead he declared while complimenting Homeland Security Sec. John Kelly: ‘I can say that after four weeks, it’s been a lot of fun accomplished but we’ve accomplished almost everything we’ve started out to accomplish — the borders are stricter, tighter.’
On the theme, Melania Trump said that ‘the scents of jasmine and roses fill the air as we give thanks for this great nation and the glory of renewal.
‘I am proud to invite all the governors to the White House for this important annual event,’ the first lady said in a statement. ‘Tonight, we come together as one Nation, leaving political labels and partisan interests behind.’
At the dinner Sunday evening, President Trump congratulated his wife on hosting the event.
He said: ‘I want to just congratulate the First Lady on having done a really beautiful job. The room, they say, has never looked better. But who knows? I’m sure it has looked good many times. Melania, congratulations.’
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer pointed out the scheduling conflict when asked by a reporter earlier in the week if the president planned to watch the Oscars – and respond to any criticism of his administration coming from the starlets on stage.
Spicer noted how the president and first lady will be hosting the Governors’ Ball that night, which is part of the National Governors Association’s winter meeting in Washington.
‘Mrs. Trump looks forward to putting on a phenomenal event,’ Spicer said. ‘And the first lady’s put a lot of time into this event that’s going to occur, welcoming our nation’s governors to the capital and I have a feeling that that’s where the president and the first lady are going to be focused on, on Sunday night.’
