The dinner is Trump’s first state dinner since he became president.

On Monday, Macron and Trump planted a tree gifted by France outside the White House. It was the first ceremonial act of Macron’s state visit.

The first lady selected the decor, entertainment and food for Tuesday’s dinner. The menu will consist of three courses that include American dishes with French influences.

The Washington National Opera from the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts will perform at the dinner.
