President Donald Trump will skip next week's White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) Dinner and will instead hold a campaign rally the same day.

The Hill cited a statement from Trump's 2020 campaign that said the president will spend time April 28 with "patriotic Americans" in Michigan rather than attend the annual gala in the nation's capital.

"While the fake news media will be celebrating themselves with the denizens of Washington society in the swamp that evening, President Trump will be in a completely different Washington, celebrating our national economic revival with patriotic Americans," Trump campaign COO Michael Glassner said.

It was reported earlier this month Trump would not attend the dinner for the second consecutive year.

The WHCA was founded in 1914 and represents the White House press corps, which follows the sitting president wherever he or she goes. Comedian Michelle Wolf will serve as the event's featured entertainer.

The sitting president and first lady typically attend the dinner, but Trump has bucked that trend thus far.
