US President Donald Trump has announced he will not attend the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on 29 April.
The glitzy event draws celebrities, journalists and politicians, normally including the US president.
Mr Trump said he would not attend a day after the White House excluded several major broadcasters and newspapers from a press briefing.
He has frequently described negative news coverage as “fake”.
The announcement, made via Twitter, comes as relations between the White House and some media outlets continue to deteriorate.
