Trump will Skip Spring Correspondents Dinner

The Associated Press reports today that US President Donald Trump will not be attending this spring’s White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) dinner. The dinner raises money for journalistic scholarships and honors recipients of the WHCA’s journalism awards. In a tweet Saturday, President Trump stated:

19h19 hours ago

I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!

As seen in last years presidential race, President Trump has been attacked by mainstream media and the polls produced by the news organizations consistently showed that candidate Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 US presidential election. The AP report states that President Trump is “famously thin-skinned” but failed to cite examples supporting the accusation.
