US President Barack Obama was set to host a dinner celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan on Tuesday evening. Obama was also to highlight the contributions of American Muslims at the event in the White House's State Dining Room. The guest list included Cabinet secretaries, members of Congress, ambassadors from Islamic nations and Muslim community leaders. During his eight years in office, former US president George W. Bush held an iftar, the meal that breaks the daily fast during Ramadan.
