President Trump has canceled the White House Christmas party for the rotten press this year.
Perhaps the President isn’t interested in rewarding the anti Trump media that continues to be so hostile and negative toward him. (Video Below)
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 annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion.
At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print 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.
The news of the cancellation isn’t that surprising considering the media’s hostility towards Trump. A study by the Media Research Center found that 92 percent of press coverage over the summer of Trump was negative, compared to just eight percent positive, per Bongino. (Video Below)
Last month CNN’s Jim Acosta’s disrespectful behavior at during a press conference with President Trump and a female White House intern resulted in his hard pass removed for a few days.

Like clockwork, CNN’s April Ryan took to twitter to respond to the news and wrote, “FYI, I had never planned to attend the White House Christmas party last year or this year. Why break bread with folks who hate you & call you names? (
@PressSec & @realDonaldTrump) That is not the Christmas spirit I know. I feel sorry for those who wanted to go and can’t. SAD!” (Video Below)
