The annual White House Correspondents Dinner, which takes place in April of every year, has been cancelled this year.
“We have worked through any number of scenarios over the last several months, but to put it plainly: while improving rapidly, the COVID-19 landscape is just not at a place where we could make the necessary decisions to go ahead with such a large indoor event,” the organization said in a statement (via Variety). “Dinner or not, we will spend the next few months celebrating and honoring the First Amendment, the remarkable journalism produced over the last year and the promising young reporters who will serve as the next generation in our ranks.”
The 2020 event was also cancelled due to Coronavirus. Trump repeatedly skipped the event when he was President.
