WASHINGTON – Adding to a tradition set by his predecessor, Barack Obama, US President Donald Trump will throw two Hanukkah parties this year, according to a White House official.

The events will take place on December 5 in the afternoon, and there will be “no distinction” between the two. The purpose for two parties is simply to accommodate more guests, the official said.
