From Fox News, “Trump says not going to White House Correspondents dinner“.
President Trump said Saturday that he will not attend the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, escalating his battle with the news media and raising questions about the future of the annual event.
“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year,” Trump tweeted. “Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!”
The comment was just the latest turn in Trump’s adversarial relationship with the news media, which essentially began at the start of his campaign in July 2015 and took another questionable turn Friday.
