Donald Trump heads to Macomb County for a Saturday rally and will forgo the annual White House Correspondents Dinner that night.
In a letter emailed to supporters, Trump writes:
My staff asked, “Mr. President, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner is coming up. Will you go?”
I said, “Why would I want to be stuck in a room with a bunch of fake news liberals who hate me?”
I came up with something much better. I’m going to hold a rally in Michigan to spend the evening with my favorite deplorables who love our movement and love America!
I’m inviting one patriot and a friend of your choice to enter to win as my special VIP guests. Just make a contribution toward our 2020 efforts to automatically enter.
Trump is scheduled to appear in Washington Township at 7 p.m.
During the 2016 campaign, Hillary Clinton called Trump supporters as “deplorables.”
