BREAKING: Trump Just Made HUGE Announcement, LOOK What He Is Doing This Week

President Trump announced Saturday afternoon that he will be holding a rally that happens to be the same night as the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

“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.”

No White House staff will attend the dinner either as a show of solidarity with Trump, and outlets such as Vanity Fair, TIME, People, Bloomberg, and the New Yorker have canceled their parties.

Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein will headline the event in Trump’s place to present journalism awards.

    Sounds like the trickle down effect is hitting the news corp. What a great event this is. These people just don’t get it. The people come first, not the news, not the government, not the actors, the common people throughout out our heartland. What a great day that the government is boycotting the annual gathering of those who think they are so important who have disgraced themselves with lies, cheating, bias, disgusting tactics, and some outright nastiness. They deserve what they are getting that is left out in the dark and cold. I don’t trust them anymore and have stopped listening to their broadcasts. So glad our President and staff are standing up against their seeming desire to self destruct and that they are doing well.
