Cooking a dinner for President Donald Trump, his wife and two children has sparked controversy.
The New York Times reported that guests at a dinner in the Ritz-Carlton hotel, a venue with no restaurant and seating for fewer than 200, were seated at the table.
Guests were seated for more than 30 minutes, the Times said, adding that the meal included a “speciality” dinner for a family of three.
The Times also reported that the White House Correspondents Dinner had not been held in the hotel for the past four years, but instead at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
The Washington Post reported that several diners reported that they were served food and beverages they did not want.
Some of the diners said they were not aware of the fact that the dinner had been moved, the Post said.
The dinner was held in lieu of the formal Correspondents’ Dinner, which was the first formal dinner in more than a decade for the president.
