President Trump announced on Twitter yesterday that he was skipping the White House Correspondents Dinner, becoming the first President not to attend since Ronald Reagan(when we was recovering from an attempted assassination).

Meanwhile, in an effort to still have a pro-Russian speaking at the annual dinner, the White House shared that Vladimir Putin would attend on President Trump’s behalf.

Trump tweeted:

“Russia is fake news and the Media is fake news.  So it’s a perfect match to have Vladimir Putin represent me at WH Correspondents Dinner.”

“I am not fake news so I won’t attend big fake news party.”
