AGAIN: Kuwait Plans Gala At Trump’s DC Hotel

The Washington Post reports:

For the second year in a row, the Kuwaiti embassy will hold a large National Day celebration at President Trump’s hotel in downtown Washington.

An invitation obtained by The Washington Post said the event is scheduled to be held in the hotel ballroom the evening of Feb. 26. A source familiar with the plans, speaking on the condition of anonymity because the event is private, confirmed the details of the invitation.

Before Trump’s election, Kuwait had held its National Day celebrations repeatedly at the Four Seasons hotel in Georgetown — and asked the Four Seasons to reserve a day for the event to return in 2017. Then, after Trump won, Ambassador Salem al-Sabah switched the event to the Trump International Hotel — which opened in late 2016 on Pennsylvania Avenue NW.
