President Trump bucked tradition Saturday night as he skipped the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington DC and instead held a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to mark his 100th day in office, the Gateway Pundit reports.
Trump became the first president to decline an invitation since 1981 when Ronald Reagan was recovering from an assassin’s bullet.
In front of a cheering crowd, Trump said that has been administration has been delivering for Americans every single day.
In contrast, he accused the news media as “fake news” and deserved “a big, fat failing grade” for their job.
“I could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from Washington, spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people,” Trump tells the audience.
Media organizations were broadcasting Trump’s Harrisburg rally instead of the event in the nation’s capital where journalists and political insiders gather in the red carpet festivities.
