Trumps feature Central Park in congressional picnic invite

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump will host members of Congress and guests at the White House for a picnic in late June. Only problem? The invite features a pleasant watercolor painting of what appears to be New York’s Central Park.

The congressional picnic will take place the evening of June 22, according to a copy of the invitation. The rain date is June 23.

The picnic has been an annual event used by presidents in recent years to mingle with lawmakers and occasionally hash out major legislative issues. For Trump, there’s no shortage of agenda items to discuss, given his pledge to tackle healthcare reform, tax reform and a major infrastructure bill.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment regarding the Central Park backdrop on the invite.
