U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday night hosted his first White House Hanukkah party.

In his speech, Trump noted that this is an "especially special" Hanukkah, and mentioned his declaration recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from a day earlier.

The president said he is thinking about "what's going on" in Israel and in Jerusalem.

“Hanukkah is a time for Jewish families around the world to celebrate the miracles of the past and the promises of the future. We are proud to stand with the people of Israel and renew our enduring bond,” said Trump.

"And right now I’m thinking about what’s going on and the love that's all over Israel and all about Jerusalem," he added.

The annual Hanukkah reception at the White House is an annual tradition that began in 2001 during the administration of George W. Bush, and continued during the administration of Barack Obama.
