Politico reported on Friday that Trump has not invited any Democratic lawmakers to the Tuesday dinner, nor has he extended invitations to members of the media a departure from past state dinners.
Of the roughly 150 people that are set to attend the dinner, only four are members of Congress: House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.); Rep. Ed Royce, the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee; and Sens. John Kennedy (R-La.) and Bill Cassidy (R-La.), according to Politico.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was invited, but is unable to attend, Politico reported. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) was not extended an invite.
Lea Berman, the White House social secretary under former President George W. Bush, told Politico that the exclusion of Democrats and members of the media is "a break with tradition."

Trump wants to eat in peace and digest his food properly.
Im sure there are enough rat repugs who will leak to you...”
Ya know? This may be an opportunity for Trump to find out who the real RINOs are. With no Dems there what leaks out can tell Trump WHO is leaking?
Now, like a normal person, he can refer to places as “shitholes” and people as “shitheads” (like those not invited) and nobody will hear about it.
PRyno is a good candidate to be a leaker as he is definitely NeverTrump.
We have had lots of breaks with tradition these days
Like the Democrats and their high level official buddies trying to frame the President and to remove him from office.
Why do they separate Democrats and “Media?” They are one in the same. A tyrannical occupation. We need to move that Overton window a bit more.
We hate you and are trying with our last muscle to destroy you! Um, but can we come to dinner?
Good. All they do is obstruct.
Seems like if you voted against tax cuts youre not invited.
If you oppose POTUS cabinet appointments, you are not invited.
If your party sues the President, youre not invited.
If you push fake collusion to hurt the country, youre not invited.
If you oppose the wall, you arent invited.
If you are funded by Soros, you are not invited.
If you take marching orders from Obunghole, you are not invited.
Trump knows this is war.
Don’t blame him for no media. Who wants someone yelling out stupid questions when you are trying to enjoy your meal.
I bet old Joe Manchin is very disappointed.
He always wants a picture with Trump,
shakes hands and then votes however
Chuckie tells him to vote.
Good for Trump not to invite these backstabbers.
Saving money so these scroungers cannot have a feast, and a party paid for by us.
I LOVE IT! You know this is why Hollywood is so angry. They don’t have the White House as their playground.
So glad we have a president with courage and good sense.
Good, it’s bad enough that we have to tolerate democrats and media rats, why should have to sit down to eat with them or feed them?
Go President Trump, GO!.
The media should never be invited to sit at table. They are observers, not participants.
Bush refusing to criticize Obama but later saying nasty things about Trump is also a break with tradition.
