The White House Correspondents’ Dinner has a bad reputation with many — it can too easily become over the top and vitriolic.
Therefore, President Trump has announced his plans to make a strikingly similar move to when he dropped out of a Republican primary debate and hosted a fundraiser for veteran groups across the nation.
Instead of attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, he’s going to host a campaign-like rally in the now-red state of Pennsylvania.
President Donald Trump tweeted on Saturday he would be holding a “BIG rally in Pennsylvania” next Saturday evening, the same night as the White House Correspondents Dinner, The Hill reported.
The president announced in February he would break with tradition and not attend the annual event hosted by the White House Correspondents’ Association, scheduled for April 29 at the Washington Hilton. The White House staff also will not attend the dinner attended by lawmakers and celebrities, Politico reported last month.
Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania. Look forward to it!
