[Ed. – No matter how hard the media try, they won’t be able to prevent Trump from sucking up all the oxygen in the infosphere. Who but the dutiful Washington Post will even notice who’s arriving for the Nerd Prom? Which is the 29th, BTW. One reason it’s hard to fault Trump in this is the certainty that if he went, the media would be tacky and rude about Melania, who has done nothing to deserve the ill treatment they’re according her.]
President Trump will hold a rally in Pennsylvania the night of the White House Correspondents Dinner, he said Saturday.
“Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania. Look forward to it!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

The announcement comes after Trump decided earlier this year that he would skip the annual dinner in Washington, D.C., breaking with longtime political tradition of the president attending the event alongside lawmakers and celebrities.
