On Saturday, President Trump took to Twitter to issue a notice about the upcoming White House Correspondents Dinner, which has come to be known informally as Nerd Prom: it’s his party, and he can cancel it if he wants to.
Here’s what Trump tweeted:
I will not be attending the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner this year. Please wish everyone well and have a great evening!

Good for him.
