President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump offer an open invite to governors for tonight’s Governors Ball.
The First Lady wishes to avoid partisanship, and to show unity (per the Hill):
“I am proud to invite all the governors to the White House for this important annual event,” the first lady said in a press release. “Tonight, we come together as one Nation, leaving political labels and partisan interests behind.”
This dinner is a part of the National Governors Association’s meeting this weekend.
