Trump to skip White House Correspondents' Dinner again - but aides will attend

Mr. Trump, who has famously feuded with the media, became the first president in recent memory to skip the annual dinner previous year.

President Trump says that he "probably" won't attend the annual White House correspondents dinner, marking the second time that the President has ditched the event during this term in office.

"To say that the President hasn't addressed that directly, he did that while standing on stage with the leaders of the Baltic countries, in front of, I believe, nearly every single one of you earlier this week, so its just not a fair or accurate statement", she added.

Trump remains the only president since Ronald Reagan to skip the dinner (and Reagan had a pretty good reason: He had been shot). "Now in some cases there's sources, but then they won't do it correctly either". "We are now revising that at that White House".

The decision is no surprise given Trump's relationship with the media.

"In keeping with tradition, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also will represent the administration at the head table", Talev added.

However, due to Donald Trump's feud with the press, the president will once again be skipping the event.

"From advocating to leave the Paris Accord, working to repeal Obama's Clean Power Plan and WOTUS, and cleaning up toxic Superfund sites that have been languishing for decades, Administrator Pruitt is focused on advancing President Trump's agenda of regulatory certainty and environmental stewardship", Jahan Wilcox, a Pruitt spokesman, said in a statement on Monday.

Trump had promised to attend this year's dinner on April 28.

One reaction on Twitter noted: "Last summer and this spring, the White House had a combined 206 interns".
