President Trump announced Saturday that he would not be attending the White House Correspondents Association Dinner in April, punctuating his combative relationship with the news media. I will not be attending the White House Correspondents Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening! tweeted Mr. Trump. The annual dinner is a light-hearted affair that traditionally featuring comedians and the president giving roast-style speeches. But Mr. Trump has been battling the press throughout the presidential campaign and has had repeated run-ins with reporters since taking office. Hes railed against what he calls fake news and recently denounced the news media as enemies of the American people.

Who would blame him.
Why would any sane person want to sit in a room with a bunch of nimrods who hate you and regularly tweet out death threats.
I just posted the same thing...from The Hollywood reporter...well done!
Yeah, I can’t see why he wouldn’t want to be sh** on for a few hours by a bunch of left-wing sycophants.
trump should schedule a veterans’ benefit for the same time in DC.
Let the media go to their own dinner, stand around with their ****s in their hands, and sing kum bah freaking yah to each other, lol
why do we even have this dinner? The President has more to do than attend a dopey dinner, and eat what many of us could never afford to eat.
How about a double whammy....have President Trump give/sponsor a dinner honoring MILITARY journalists!! YOu know....the ones in uniform that give us the news when we are overseas and all we have to watch is Armed Forces Television Network!
Total waste of his time. They hate him.....and the feeling is mutual. Screw ‘em. If he goes they STILL will hate him.
Great idea, let them grovel as they try to rationalize why he went to one and not the other.
Pence needs to decline also.
That and add the ‘alternative media’.
This is great. The correspondents dinner has become nothing more than a mean-spirited “roast” for Republicans and a love fest for Democrats. The media benefits from it, but other than that, there’s no real point to this dinner.
Absolutely. If he doesn’t I’ll be very disappointed.
He should announce: Instead of the WHCD I am going to be having a western style BBQ with Vladimir Putin, his wife, and a gaggle of conservative reporters.
PRETENDING they’re just Ole Buddies after all the fireworks simply encourages them.
FINALLY someone who can be HONEST about how they hate each other:
They are calling him a “ coward” fir declining to give them his time and attention
Why go to a “fake” dinner?
