Trump criticizes news media on night of press dinner

Trump criticizes news media on night of press dinner

But despite Mr Trump's claim to be keeping his promises, he has failed to start construction on the wall he plans along the US-Mexico border - or to get Mexico to pay for it.

In his opening remarks at the rally in Harrisburg on Saturday evening, he mentioned the "big gathering" in Washington - the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner, which he declined to attend and dismissed the event as "a large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media" who he said were "consoling each other in a hotel ballroom", The Washington Post reported.

Well, in an address on Friday, he said his first 100 days had been "just about the most successful" in USA history. And that's because he lives in Moscow, it is a very long flight.

Rather than attending the annual dinner - where the president traditionally is the opening act for a well-known Hollywood comedian and is also the butt of numerous event's jokes - Trump has opted to take a short trip from Washington to Pennsylvania. Donald Trump, because it's 10 AM in Russian Federation. "Those are business hours", he added.

Bernstein also addressed lying and secrecy in the Nixon White House, but stopped short of drawing a direct parallel to President Donald Trump's administration.

Talking about the President's continuous attack on the media accusing them of having lost the faith of the people, Minhaj called on the gathered press to dig their heels in and up their game. On his RSVP, he just wrote "NO". "I don't know. Tweet us @AC360'".

Minhaj, who is a staunch advocate for LGBT rights, compared himself to a tribute for the "Hunger Games", and airing fears that Steve Bannon might eat him.

He said Betsy DeVos couldn't be here, she's busy curating her collection of children's tears. No one wanted to do this, so of course it lands in the hands of an immigrant. So good job, ladies.

"Donald Trump is liar-in-chief". You guys. You can't make ay mistakes. You are his biggest enemy.

Minhaj also made an analogy between the media and minorities in society, as both suffer from discrimination. And we will make America great again.

Trump attended in 2011, when then-President Barack Obama made jokes at the expense of the NY real estate developer and reality television show host. Is this an article about global warming or 50 cents off Tide?

Only 46 per cent respondents express at least somewhat confidence in Trump's ability, while 17 per cent say not too confident and another 35 per cent express no confidence at all in Trump's ability.

"Fox News is here". How are you here in public?

"I voted for him and I'll give him a year". But it finally happened. "Making it the only package he won't force a woman to touch", he said.

The rally ended with the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" - a song that typically ended Trump's rallies. And I just watched another network than yours, and they were saying, 'Pre-existing is not covered.' Pre-existing conditions are in the bill.
