    Post Welcome greeting

    Hi, teachers
    I wanna know what is the appropriate and authentic way of greeting when the president receives his guests. ( Let's assume both president and ambassador are native English speakers here. )
    Is "you're welcome" a recommended way of greeting when the pesident receives his guests? (let's assume the president didn't say anything before greeting. It's his first words)
    Is it okay for the president to say "you're welcome" whenever he receives his guests.(let's assume the president didn't say anything before greeting. It's his first words)
    I wonder a lot about it..

    thanks for reading..

    Re: Welcome greeting

    'You're welcome' is not normally used as a greeting; it's a response to being thanked. Simply 'Welcome' could be used, bvut it might be better to expand a little by including the place or the occasion.
