US President Donald Trump has not held an iftar dinner for the end of Ramadan, breaking a Muslim tradition held at the White House for more than two centuries, The Hill reported.

The White House noted that Trump issued a statement Saturday greeting Muslims as they celebrate the holiday of Eid al-Fitr.

The dinners began under President Clinton and were continued by President George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The iftar dinner at the White House is usually attended by prominent members of the Muslim community, diplomats and Congress members.
