On April 29th, hundreds of Washington, D.C. insiders, lobbyists, mainstream media experts, and government employees will gather at the White House to embellish themselves in expensive drinks and fancy foods. The event is filled with people living convivial lives while Americans throughout the country struggle to shoulder the load of a government gone mad.
But during this jovial event, the man of the hour will not be in attendance. Instead, President Donald Trump will be hitting the road to spend time with the American people in the town of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania. Look forward to it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 22, 2017
The rally is scheduled the same day as President Trump marks the 100th day of his presidency.
“The media is trying to make this about them when — respectfully it has nothing to do with you guys,” a White House official said. “It’s about focusing on the people.”
President Trump made the decision to skip the annual dinner in February, an event that Barack Obama hosted all eight years of his presidency.
In 2011, Obama invited President Trump to the dinner for the sole purpose of embarrassing the New York businessman on the national stage. Some people say the "Make America Great Again" campaign began that night.
The night of self gratification comes around six months after the so-called elites, both Republican and Democrat, predicted that Hillary Clinton would become the 45th president of the United States.
