Donald Trump will be breaking a tradition that has existed for almost 100 years as he revealed on his Twitter handle that he wouldn’t be attending the annual White House dinner which is to take place on April 29.

The dinner is an annual event in attendance by high profile celebrities, politicians and journalists.

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

It is believed this is coming as a result of Trump’s strained relationship with the media.
