Trump escapes 'swamp' for another Washington, in MI

Reporter's child asks Huckabee Sanders why Trump fired Comey

At the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday night, host Michelle Wolf nailed Trump on his claims about his wealth. Trump posted on Facebook this past week that he would hold a Saturday evening rally in MI with his "favorite deplorables" - a term that Democrat Hillary Clinton used in 2016 to describe some of Trump's campaign supporters.

This is the second year in a row that the President has skipped the annual dinner in favor of rallying with his supporters. "He couldn't take it.' And if you do smile, they'll say, 'What was he smiling about?' You know, there's no win".

Trump won't be there, but there will be plenty of Trump-inspired zingers tonight at the annual dinner of the White House Correspondents' Association. And if you don't smile they'll say, "He was awful, he couldn't take a joke.' And if you do smile, they'll say "What was he smiling about?' You know, there's no win".

How can I watch the dinner?

"And then I'm supposed to." he continued, faking an exaggerated smile. "I think it's cowardly not to go".

Trump made promises to the MI crowd too that echoed his 2016 presidential campaign.

European Union member states vote to ban neonicotinoids
Some restrictions were introduced in 2013 , banning their use on a number of crops including wheat, barley and oats. European Commission officials hope the ban will come into force by the end of the year.

Trump's aides skipped last year's dinner, when some accompanied Trump to a rally in Pennsylvania where he celebrated his 100th day in office.

"Look forward to being in the Great State of MI tonight", Trump said in a tweet hours before the event in Washington Township.

Known to be deeply averse to criticism of his person, Trump will instead host a carefully scripted celebratory rally in the state of MI, attended only by those who have been vetted for their vocal support of the strikingly polarizing USA president.

With the absence of the president and most of Hollywood's stars, who used to attend, the focus has returned to the actual goal of the event, said WHCA president Margaret Talev.
