The White House Correspondents’ Association will hold their annual dinner tonight in Washington, D.C. without President Donald Trump in attendance. Comedian Hasan Minhaj hosts the dinner and it is scheduled to start at 8:00 PM ET.
In February, Trump announced via Twitter that he would not be attending the dinner, becoming the first sitting president since Ronald Reagan to skip the event. Last month, it was reported that the entire White House staff would skip the WHCD in solidarity with the president.
Last week, Trump announced that he was holding a big campaign-style rally on the same night as the dinner. Besides being held at the same time as the dinner, the rally also occurs on the president’s 100th day in office.
