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."

So, only normal people.
Good. Screw the lot of them.
Meanwhile, the media unfair and immature treatment of this POTUS is long-standing tradition? That’s a tradition that needs to end then.
Liberals don’t know how to behavior like civilized adults. I wouldn’t invite them either.
When they support the US, they’ll be welcome again.
Why should he? So they can report in their usual bitchy/catty manner on how he eats food or what he has served? And then mock the gorgeous Melania?
Don’t worry, rats, I’m sure there are enough rat repugs who will leak to you...
Good, only Americans are invited.
“.......next week for his first state dinner, no Democrats or members of the media will be in attendance.”
This is good. Let them know where they stand. Worthless asshats that they are.
Who gives a damn what GW Bush’s social secretary said about a break with tradition. I’m damned glad Trump broke tradition in a lot of ways including constantly kissing up to the opposition like the Bush family routinely did and does.
maybe they can around back and the cooks can giver them so watery soup and a plain sandwich. Then send them on their way. Just like Depression days. God knows they are a depressing lot. LOL

Gee, Why invite people who hate you, lie about you, and hate the country.
Aww poor little Commies. They go and get their panties in a bunch when they don’t get a free meal.
drain the swamp !
So, president Trump wants to be able to digest his meal without throwing up. Makes sense.
About time somebody put the media in their place, socially. They belong standing outside the gate, looking in. Not seated at the table. If Trump had invited someone from Fox or Dow Jones/WSJ, theyd’d have a beef.
As for no Democrats, why ruin a perfectly good meal?
Leftists who always promote revolution and attack the established order now whining about “a break with tradition”, as if they ever care about traditions.
The stench of hypocrisy is unbearable.
That is what he was elected for. Not the SOS.
