Donald Re-Takes Manhattan: Trump Heads Home for First Time Since Becoming President
The president will host the prime minister of Australia.
President Trump is returning to the Big Apple Thursday for the first time since his inauguration for a meeting with Australia’s prime minister.
The NYPD has warned of massive gridlock and street closures all around the city throughout the day.
Protests are expected to happen around Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue and around the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, where Trump will have dinner with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
The black-tie dinner marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea, when Australia and the U.S. joined forces to defeat the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II.
Trump and Turnbull are looking to patch up their relationship following their tumultuous phone call they had shortly after the real estate mogul became president.
The two world leaders got into a heated disagreement over a refugee agreement between the nations. The call, which was expected to last an hour, was only 25 minutes long after Trump abruptly ended it, later reportedly saying, “This was the worst call by far."
Trump told Fox News last week that he has not returned to New York as often as he would like because of the inconvenience to the people of the city.
“I hate to see the New Yorkers with the streets closed,” he admitted.
Following the visit, the president will spend the weekend at the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, N.J.
