Donald Trump Accepts Invitation To Visit Slovenia, Melania's Homeland

Donald Trump is going back to Slovenia.

The president has been invited to the homeland of his wife, Melania, by Slovenian president Borut Pahor, according to Reuters.

The invitation was extended after both presidents attended a meeting with leaders of the European Union on Thursday, July 6. A statement from President Pahor's cabinet confirmed the fact Trump accepted the invitation, Reuters reports.

No exact date has been determined.

If and when President Trump does follow through with the reported invitation to Slovenia, it won't be his first time visiting the country.

Trump visited the central European nation back in 2002, when he went to visit Melania Trump's parents, two years before the pair got engaged. The meeting lasted just a few hours, according to the New Yorker, but it is one of the only — or, perhaps, the only — accounts of the president visiting Slovenia.

During a 2005 interview with Larry King, Trump said the meeting lasted even shorter. Trump said,

I was there about 13 minutes. It's a beautiful country. I landed, said, ‘Hi, mom, hi, dad; bye.' Boom.

Since becoming First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump's hometown of Sevnica has seen a bump in tourism, and has been selling everything from Melania-themed wines to Malania-themed teacups.

The town mayor, Srecko Ocvirk, told NPR,

A lot of people are coming from Europe, Japan, China and the U.S. From an anonymous little town, we are now on the world tourist map.

The invitation might not be the last extended towards Trump, as the president is expected to meet with many world leaders during his trip in Europe for the G20 summit in Germany.

Trump already visited Poland, where he delivered a speech in Warsaw and found himself in another internet humor-friendly gif.

And while he received favorable reception in Poland, Melania is sure to be the star of the show during a trip to her homeland, Slovenia.
