President Trump isn’t at all like the presidents that came before him.
He does what he wants, and he gets things done – without regard for keeping tradition.
Our country is doing better than it ever did under Obama, and that’s almost entirely due to Trump’s cut-the-crap philosophy to running our great nation.
Trump made waves the past two years when he refused to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner, which conventional presidents never missed.
This year, he has once again announced that he will not be present at the dinner, calling it “boring” and “negative.” (We appreciate his honesty!)
But something’s different this time around. Instead of attending the dinner, Trump plans on hosting a huge, awesome, and upbeat (unlike the White House Correspondents Dinner) rally!
Take a look at the news that hit Twitter:
Check out this video tweeted out by ABC News of the president's response to being asked if he will attend the White House Correspondents Dinner:
Way to tell it like it is, President Trump! MAGA!
Politico had the following to say about Trump's decision:
President Donald Trump announced Friday that he will once again forgo the White House Correspondents’ Association's annual dinner, and will instead host a rally on the night of the event.
"Because the dinner is so boring and so negative, that we're going to hold a very positive rally instead," Trump told reporters on Friday ahead of his trip to Calexico, Calif.
Trump hasn't attended the dinner, once an annual event for the president, since taking office. In 2017, no one from the White House attended the dinner. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and others from the administration attended the 2018 event.
The WHCA late last year announced that presidential historian and author Ron Chernow would be this year's speaker, breaking from the tradition of hosting a comedian who typically skewers the president and others in Washington. Trump was famously the subject of several jokes from comedian Seth Meyers at the 2011 dinner, which he attended.
Last year's speaker, comedian Michelle Wolf, was the subject of intense criticism from the White House and some members of the media following her stand-up set, particularly for her jokes about Sanders.
ABC 7 WJLA also briefly commented:
Trump is criticizing the dinner as he departs the White House en route to California, telling reporters he doesn't want to attend "because the dinner is so boring and so negative."
He says he likes "positive things" instead.
Trump also says his team has yet to settle on a rally location, but assures "it'll be a big one."
We can't wait to find out where the rally will be held and look forward to witnessing it!
