President Trump and first lady Melania Trump hosted a reception Thursday for the White House Historical Association.

Mr. Trump told the guests gathered in the State Dining Room that the White House was “a place that I’ve grown to love and respect.”

“This is a House like no other,” said the president, noting that the White House has been defined by different words in its history, including “beauty,” “power,” and “coldness.”
