Trump tweets that he’ll skip WH Correspondents Dinner; why Ann Coulter is relieved

Powered by Topple

President Donald Trump has decided not to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner.

The president said he was skipping the annual event that celebrates the media but he wished them well.

It’s not a big surprise as several news outlets, including Bloomberg News, cancelled afterparties and it was reported that CNN was discussing not attending.

But the White House Correspondents Association confirmed it will still hold the event.

Conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter said the decision was a good move.

“I want him working and not hanging around with the enemy,” he told Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro on “Justice” Saturday as she joked that he might be “in danger” at the “frivolous event.”

Coulter said the organizations holding the dinner are “the propagators of the biggest and most blatant lies” and skipping the event is “four more hours he can spend shutting down sanctuary cities.”
