Donald Trump tweeted this morning that he will not be attending the White House Correspondent’s Dinner! Wow! How about that! Maybe they should just cancel the whole stupid thing!
Here is Trump’s Tweet…
I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!

Trump’s decision not to attend comes just one day after CNN, The New York Times and the Politico were not ‘invited’ to a press ‘gaggle’ in White House Press Secretary Sean Spicers office on Friday. Only about 20 organizations were invited including Breitbart News which sent CNN and others into a tizzy.
Time Magazine and the Associated Press, who were invited to the press gaggle decided to ‘protest’ the others being excluded and did not attend the meeting.
One thing for sure with Trump, he is exposing how bad things are with the media and the political elite. The elites, both Democrat and Republican all hate Trump. They hate how he acts, they hate how he talks and they really hate how he won the election by aligning himself with working people and people who love America as it was founded.
It is excellent that he is standing up to the press and calling then out publically.
If you recall in 2011 Donald Trump attended the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner and was roasted by then President Obama about the birth certificate issue.
Watch: President Obama Roast Donald Trump
