Trump announces he won't attend this year's White House Correspondents' Association dinner

While Trump calls the media "fake" and the "enemy," a new survey from Public Policy Polling, a Democratic firm with a strong reputation, suggests that a majority of people have greater faith in the press compared to the White House.

Bloomberg has cancelled its annual White House Correspondents Dinner afterparty.

The White House Correspondents Association issued a statement earlier this month saying that there will still be a dinner. Details may change. This story will be updated, and NCRM will likely publish follow-up stories on this news.

Reporters for CNN, The New York Times, Politico, The Los Angeles Times and BuzzFeed were not allowed into the session in the office of press secretary Sean Spicer, a decision that drew strong protests. Several big sponsors of parties throughout the weekend have also announced they will not participate this year. CNN, frequently criticized by Trump, has been contemplating sitting out the dinner.

Trump wrote on Twitter. The failing @nytimes has become a joke. It is usually a lighthearted event that provides opportunities for presidents to poke some fun at the media who cover the administration.

The first dinner was held in 1921 and Calvin Coolidge was the first president to attend, in 1924.

According to the History Channel the dinner has been cancelled three times: following the death of former president William Howard Taft, in 1930, after the United States entry into the second world war in 1942, and in 1951, during the Korean war.
