Trump is the second year in a row refuses dinner with the press

Donald trump for the second time refused to participate in the dinner with the press at the White house. His statement has resonated in the media environment, as in the entire history of the United States is the third case of failure on the part of the President. For the first time this happened 37 years ago, when President Ronald Reagan was unable to attend the event due to wounds received in the assassination attempt on his life.

Last year, trump himself wrote in his Twitter that will not participate in the dinner with journalists. This year, he announced his decision through the White house staff.

I will not be attending the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!

Now between the White house and many media have created very tense relations. Trump regularly attacks critics of its issuance, calling them «fake news» and «enemies of the United States».

Correspondents ‘ dinner is held each year and dedicated to the celebration of the First amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of the press. On this day, journalists receive awards and prizes for their activity within the walls of the White House.
