White House Correspondents' Dinner News, Pictures, and Videos

Whether it’s drugs or murder or other things we’re getting bad ones out' Trump said of his immigration crackdown

Donald Trump has announced that he will break with years of tradition and skip this year's White House Press Correspondent's Dinner.

On Friday, the White House excluded several major USA news organizations, including some it has criticized, from an off-camera briefing held by the White House press secretary.

Trump has a complicated history with The White House Correspondents' Dinner. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!'

The president's announcement comes amid growing tensions between his administration and the media, with several media organizations announcing they would not be participating in this year's event.

The dinner is planned for April 29, 2017. Vanity Fair, which has cohosted the after party with Bloomberg LP in past years, pulled out earlier this month.

Many observers have linked Trump's run for the presidency with events at the 2011 correspondents' dinner, in which Barack Obama ridiculed the businessman, who was in attendance, over his championing of the so-called "birther" movement. BuzzFeed reported yesterday that CNN has been discussing whether to attend or not. CNN, frequently criticized by Trump, has been contemplating sitting out the dinner.

In the speech Friday, Trump unloaded on the news media for using anonymous sources, just hours after members of his own staff insisted on briefing reporters only on condition their names be concealed.
