Trump Cancels White House Christmas Party for Press

President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.

The White House made no announcement that it was dropping the press party. The president and first lady threw such a gathering last December but did not pose for pictures. Trump made a brief appearance with his wife and offered a few welcoming remarks.

Trump has also twice refused to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner, a tony media awards dinner attended by every president since Richard Nixon.

While dropping the media party, the White House is in the midst of a full panoply of other parties this holiday season. Selected media people generally favorable to Trump, including a few Fox News hosts, have made those guest lists.

Another Presidential tradition bites the dust. Trump really shows his disdain for the office of President and its traditions, acting as nothing more than some petulant baby.

Mods: The title should have been the title of the article, not the link. Could we edit the title back to what it should be? Thanks.

Seems to me the only people who might have heartburn over this are Trump haters who will seize on anything to complain about Trump and the media who won't have a taxpayer-funded party to go to. Sucks, but too bad.

In any case, perhaps the media never learned this lesson:

It's clear the deep state forced him to cancel because of their ongoing war on Christmas.

as mentioned in the other thread
If true, it is very sad that we can't set our differences aside if only for one evening. Not siding with one or the other here.
