WASHINGTON (CBS Detroit/ AP) – President Trump will skip the White House Correspondents Dinner for a second straight year.
The president’s campaign announced Tuesday that Trump will hold a rally on April 28 in Michigan.
The event will be in Washington, Mich. at Total Sports Park, is slated to begin around the same time as the glitzy gala in the far more well-known Washington, D.C.
Trump has skipped the dinner both years he has been in office.
But this year, unlike in 2017, he has encouraged aides to attend. Some, however, will be needed to staff the just-announced rally.
Last year, he held a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and spent much of the evening bashing the press, saying he was “with much, much better people” at the rally.
