Donald Trump says he won't be attending the annual White House Correspondents' Associations Dinner, reports The Hill.

The GOP front-runner attended the annual dinner in 2011 and found himself the subject of jokes by President Barack Obama and then-host Seth Meyers. Trump said he enjoyed himself, but not the press coverage afterward.

"I had a great time. I was very honored by all of the attention. The president told joke after joke and it was good," Trump said, according to The Hill. "They were all very nice and delivered nicely and I had a great time and told the press. For four years, I've read what a miserable time I had."

The real estate mogul predicted that if he went this year, he would enjoy it, but the press would again say he was unhappy.

The yearly black-tie affair includes politicians, celebrities, the media, and usually includes a comedic performance by the president. 

This year's dinner will be held on April 30, just four days before Indiana's GOP presidential primary.
