President Trump will make his first trip back home to New York City as commander-in-chief next week to mark the anniversary of a World War II milestone.
Trump will visit the Big Apple May 4 abroad the USS Intrepid, an aircraft carrier converted to a maritime museum, for the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Coral Sea.
The battle was a victory for US and Australian forces in stopping the Japanese advance.
As a way of showcasing the “enduring bonds, deep friendship and close alliance” between the US and Australia, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer says that Trump will hold a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull aboard the Intrepid. This will be the first meeting for the two since a terse phone exchange which took place during the first weeks of Trump’s presidency.
Trump hasn’t been back to New York City since being sworn in as president Jan. 20. Read more at NYPost.
