Last year, President Trump became the first president to skip the White House Correspondents' Dinner (WCHD) since Ronald Reagan (who was recovering from being shot in an assassination attempt), and this year, he's boycotting the dinner again. Also like last year, Trump will headline a rally with supporters instead of sticking around Washington.
Look forward to being in the Great State of Michigan tonight. Major business expansion and jobs pouring into your State. Auto companies expanding at record pace. Big crowd tonight, will be live on T.V.

Trump's decision to skip is part of his broader critique of the media, which he has dubbed the "enemy of the American people." Earlier this month, he explained his choice not to attend the dinner by labeling journalists "so bad and so fake."
The WHCD host this year is Daily Show correspondent and comedian Michelle Wolf. To watch the show, tune in at 9:30 p.m. Eastern to CNN, C-SPAN, The Washington Post, or watch the livestream via YouTube below.
