The White House plans to continue its annual tradition of throwing a Cinco de Mayo party, but with one tweak: President Trump is not slated to host the party.

Vice President Mike Pence will host attendees at a reception in the Indian Treaty Room of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on Thursday, a day before May 5.

There was speculation about whether Trump would continue the tradition because of his stance against illegal immigration but support for Hispanics overall. Last year, Trump commemorated Cinco de Mayo by having a taco bowl.

It's not clear whether Trump will attend the event because he is scheduled to meet with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull in New York City on Thursday.

Former Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush celebrated the Mexican holiday almost every year with parties in the Rose Garden or East Room of the White House.

Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over France during an 1862 battle of the French-Mexican War.
