President Trump will host the first state dinner of his presidency on April 24, with French President Emmanuel Macron. "The French presidency said in a brief statement Macron’s visit would take place on April 23-25 and include a joint news conference," per Reuters.

Why it matters, from AP: Trump was the first U.S. president in decades to close his first year in office without welcoming a fellow world leader for a state visit.
