In a bid to remind President Trump that New York is a city for people of all backgrounds, Muslim grassroots movement MPower Change and the New York State Immigrant Action Fund have decided to host an Iftar in the city.
Where exactly? At none other than Trump Tower.
In a page shared on Facebook, the activist groups explain that the free, kid friendly event aims to remind the President "that this is Our New York" by bringing the State's "communities together for an Iftar at Trump Tower."
Since it was posted to Facebook, the event has attracted people's attention with hundreds sharing it and expressing their interest in attending.

Annual iftar at the White House remains unconfirmed
The upcoming Iftar at Trump Tower comes at a time when it remains unclear whether the U.S. President will host the official annual White House Iftar event this year.
Given his anti-Islamic rhetoric, people are doubting his willingness to host the event.
Since 1996, the White House - the official residence and workplace of the President of the United States - has been hosting a reception to celebrate the month of Ramadan.
And according to the Washington Post, the tradition can be traced to over two centuries ago.
"The first documented White House Iftar occurred more than 200 years ago, when President Thomas Jefferson hosted the Tunisian envoy Sidi Slimane Mhlmyla on Dec. 9, 1805, to discuss the issue of piracy in the Mediterranean Sea."
Approximately 3.3 million Muslims live in the United States and their faith has constantly come under fire, whether in Trump's speeches or calls for the (now frozen) Muslim ban.
While in recent weeks, the President's rhetoric seems to have been changing, especially after a speech he gave about Islam during a recent visit to Saudi Arabia, it remains to be seen whether he'll uphold the annual Ramadan tradition or not.
