Trump to hold rally on night of White House press dinner

  Trump to hold rally on night of White House press dinner For the second straight year, President Donald Trump is holding a rally instead of attending the White House Correspondents Dinner. The president's campaign announced Tuesday that Trump will hold a rally on April 28 in Michigan. The event in the town of Washington, which is outside Detroit, is slated to begin around the same time as the glitzy gala in the far more well-known Washington, D.C. Trump has skipped the dinner both years he has been in office.But this year, unlike in 2017, he has encouraged aides to attend. Some, however, will be needed to staff the just-announced rally.
