President Donald Trump, eager to continue working for the American people, has indicated that he is not going to be attending the White House Press Correspondents’ Dinner this year.
The event, which has been aptly nicknamed “Nerd Prom”, has largely turned into a gathering of leftist pundits and mainstream media magnates who use the opportunity to much their liberal agenda on America. This year’s gala will be slightly different from those in recent years, as President Donald Trump will not be in attendance.
In fact, Trump has now announced that he will be holding his own event that night: A rally in Pennsylvania.
“’Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania. Look forward to it!’ Trump wrote on Twitter.
“The announcement comes after Trump made the decision to skip the annual dinner in February, breaking with the tradition presidents in recent years have set by attending the event.
“The rally will be held April 29 in Harrisburg, the same day as Trump marks the 100th day of his presidency, Politico reported.
“A senior White House official said the decision to hold the rally that day had more to do with how Trump planned to spend the hours of the 100th day than the correspondents’ dinner.
“’The media is trying to make this about them when — respectfully it has nothing to do with you guys,’ said the official. ‘It’s about focusing on the people.’”
During the campaign of 2016, then candidate Donald Trump’s rallies far outpaced democratic events in the same race. Hillary Clinton was struggling to find hundreds of people willing to attend her speaking events, while Trump’s campaign was forced to turn thousands away.
How Trump’s competing rally will play into the White House Press Correspondents’ Dinner is yet to be seen, but you can be assured that the liberal media spouting off at the event will have something to say about it.
