Story from Fox News:
President Trump has canceled the annual White House Christmas party, that is held each year for members of the press, on account of the extremely combative relationship he has with several of the major news sources and select personalities in the press.
From Fox News:
The decision is hardly shocking, given Trumpâ€™s constant attacks on “fake news” and the overwhelmingly negative coverage of him and his administration. In recent weeks, the White House pulled the credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta after he refused to give up the microphone at a news conferenceÂ and restored his pass only after the network filed a lawsuit.
Trump has also twice refused to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner, a tony media awards dinner attended by every president since Richard Nixon.
