Trump to Hold Rally on Same Night As White House Correspondents' Dinner

Trump US Italy President Donald Trump will bring his next rally to Pennsylvania when he appears next Saturday at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg

The rally will take place on the same day as the annual White House correspondents' dinner, which the President has declined to attend. In a separate tweet he said he'll be announcing tax reforms this week, though the topic of the Saturday rally was not specified. "Look forward to it!" His campaign website says the rally will be held at 7:30 p.m. ET at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center.

President Trump announced on Twitter that he will be holding a rally in Pennsylvania on April 29. A justice department letter was sent to the Mayors of eight so-called sanctuary cities, including Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney.

The "enemies" remark is a play on a tweet from Trump in February, when he said the "FAKE NEWS media ... is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"

GM announces China version of hybrid Volt
A BYD Dynasty electric concept vehicle is displayed at Shanghai Auto Show during its media day, in Shanghai, China April 19, 2017. Honda Motor Co. will show its new NeuV, a futuristic concept auto the company has suggested might get an electric drivetrain.

In 2011, Trump attended the gala and was the subject of a few jokes from former president Barack Obama and Seth Meyers. The rally will be in Harrisburg, Pa. on the date that will also mark the 100th-day of Trump's presidency.

Trump won't be the only one fighting for the spotlight during the Correspondents' Dinner.

The event also falls on the same night as the White House Correspondent's Dinner, which Trump has chose to skip, breaking years of precedent.
