On May 26, it was reported that supergroup BTS will be joining the President of the United States at the White House for a discussion on Asian inclusion and representation.

More details have now been revealed about the historic meeting, and have been confirmed by a White House Press Assistant. BTS will be meeting the President of the United States on June 1, 12:30 am IST (May 31, 3 pm ET). The meeting will take place at the White House’s Oval Office, and the event will be closed press. The agenda will revolve around the need to come together in solidarity, Asian inclusion and representation, and addressing anti-Asian hate crimes and discrimination. 

With this news, came more updates, this time causing the internet to raise its eyebrows in bemusement because of their relatability. Not only is the BTS ARMY looking forward to the group’s White House visit, but it appears, so are some US Senators! Natalie Andrews, a congressional correspondent for ‘The Wallstreet Journal’, tweeted on behalf of US Senator Mazie Hirono, sharing her anticipation and looking forward to her invite to the White House to see BTS, commenting that she is the only US Senator who knows the group. 

This was followed by Senator Cris Coons quickly jumping to his defence, sharing a Tweet saying “Not even close. #BTSARMY”, and attaching a photo of his desk, showing a small BTS standee. Senator Hirono was quick to reply, as she Tweeted, “If you’re a true fan, who’s your bias? And don’t ask your staff.”
