New Delhi: US President Donald Trump has said, he will not attend the White House Correspondents’ Association annual dinner, in a break from tradition. He said in a tweet on Saturday.
This year’s dinner has been scheduled for 29th April. It was held for the first time in Washington DC in 1920.
In the past few days, Mr Trump has accused the mainstream American media as real enemy of the country. Several major news outlets including The New York Times, CNN and BBC were barred yesterday from attending an off-camera White House briefing, an unprecedented move that escalated tensions in the already fraught relationship between the Trump administration and the media.
