Trump Breaks Annual Tradition: Will Not Attend White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Washington (AFP) – Donald Trump said Saturday he will not attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, breaking with an annual tradition in which the US president is the guest of honor at a light-hearted roast held by journalists.

“I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!” Trump tweeted about the event, which is also heavily attended by celebrities.
