President Donald Trump will be holding a rally in Michigan next week instead of attending the White House Correspondents Dinner.

The president's campaign announced Tuesday that President Trump will hold a rally at Total Sports Park in Washington Township on April 28th at 7 p.m.

The event is slated to begin around the same time as the glitzy gala where reporters will gather in Washington D.C.

President Trump has skipped the dinner both years he's been in office.

But this year, unlike in 2017, he has encouraged aides to attend. Some, however, will be needed to staff the just-announced rally.

Last year, he held a rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and spent much of the evening bashing the press, saying he was "with much, much better people" at the rally.
