    President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump opened the doors of the White House to dozens of invited guests to enjoy a seated, black-tie dinner under the stars in the Rose Garden in honor of the visit of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and his wife Jenny.

Melania Trump directed the overall look and feel of the dinner, which took several months to coordinate, from the menu of sunchoke ravioli and Dover sole, to the green and gold décor motif (inspired by Australia's national colors), the floral centerpieces of roses and golden wattle (the visiting country's symbolic flower), and the entertainment, which included the US Army Strings ensemble, who lined up single file to perform along the lengthy West Wing Colonnade. 📸: Alex Brandon/ Patrick Semansky/ Associated Press

    "You and me, we're a team," Barack Obama said to Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg right before they fist bumped.

Thunberg established herself as a bona fide climate action figure after staging weekly sit-ins outside the Swedish Parliament, spawning a movement of youth climate activists to hold their own protests in more than 100 cities worldwide.

She arrived in New York last month after sailing across the Atlantic to speak at the United Nations Climate Action Summit. Thunberg traveled on a zero-emissions sailboat to reduce the environmental impact of her journey, according to a statement from her team. 📸: Obama Foundation

    A two-story mural of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has appeared on a DC street.

Local artist Rose Jaffe told CNN the mural took 10 days from start to finish. Jaffe painted Ginsburg's face, collar and hands on exterior wood panels, which were then installed on the brick wall. She felt she couldn't do Ginsburg's portrait justice if she painted directly on the textured brick, so Jaffe spent days meticulously painting Ginsburg's face in the studio. "RBG is iconic. She inspires all of us to follow our dreams," Lisa Wise, the CEO of Flock DC, which commissioned the project, said in a statement. The birds released from Ginsburg's hands are meant to represent Flock DC's brand and the next generation of activists and young people following in Ginsburg's legacy. 📸: Kate Sullivan/CNN
