Trump to skip White House Correspondents dinner for 2nd time

Trump to skip White House Correspondents dinner for 2nd time

President Donald Trump has decided again to skip what has traditionally been one of the year's most humorous events in Washington, D.C. - the White House Correspondents' Association dinner, the organization said Friday.

Talev said that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders would represent the Trump administration at the dinner.

In lieu of attending last year's dinner, Mr Trump held a rally in Pennsylvania where he told the crowd the U.S. media were incompetent and biased.

"I sort of feel that the press is so bad", Trump said. Trump also skipped last year's edition of "nerd prom", becoming the first president since Ronald Reagan in 1981 to sit out the event where journalists and politicians dress up and listen to jokes about the president.

On the other hand, it is possible that people of colour weren't eager to sign up to work in President Donald Trump's White House.

"This wasn't a president that was elected to spend his time with reporters and celebrities", Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders explained in an interview with ABC's This Week at the time, adding that it would be "kind of naive" to assume there wouldn't be any tension between the two sides. I mean, "sources say" and they have no sources.

On Friday, he slammed CNN for a "fake news" report on Trump's alleged plan to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions with the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Scott Pruitt.

Trump's decision did not come as much of a surprise as a few hours after the announcement, he tweeted about the "Fake News Media" and said "so much of the media is dishonest and corrupt!"

This year, Michelle Wolf, a stand-up comic and frequent contributor to "The Daily Show With Trevor Noah", will be the featured comedian at the event. It includes acknowledgement of award-winning reporting and the presentation of journalism scholarships.

Trump himself will not attend, for the second year in a row.
