EXCLUSIVE President Trump has canceled the White House holiday party for the media, making the decades-old tradition a victim of his increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.
The annual Christmas-season gathering was a significant perk for those covering the White House, as well as other Washington reporters, anchors and commentators, and New York media executives would regularly fly in for the occasion. At its peak, the invitation-only soirees grew so large that there were two back-to-back events, one for broadcast outlets and one for print organizations.
Journalists who attended the events, which featured a catered buffet of lamb chops, crab claws and elaborate desserts, got to roam the decorated mansion with a spouse or other family member, a friend or a colleague, adding to the invitation's allure.

It’s best to end this to ensure he doesn’t violate FEC rules on campaign spending.
“You get nothing but a lump of coal!”
Scumbag press is butthurt they won’t get into W.H. to bash Trump to his face.
Good, why waste food feeding people who wish you nothing but harm?
Good, they should get rid of this tradition all together.
They can enjoy their winter break then
EXCELLENT. The Presidency is not constituted to party with the courtesans in the press.
Remember, President Trump does NOT throw the first fist. But his counter-punch can sometimes be awesome in its scope and reach.
Play nice or stay the hell off my lawn.
Use that budget to BUILD THE WALL!
Trump! The Grinch who stole Christmas from the media.
"No soup for you!"
does it matter?
If he showered them with champagne and caviar, picked them up in his limo, and offered them unlimited photo opps, they’re just going to shred him the next day on the news.
Then they whine about “freedom of the press”.
Way to GO PRESIDENT TRUMP!
Love it! YOU are doing the Right Thing!
Tell the Press
.”IT’s Cold Outside!”
and that’s where
you folks belong... ..On the Outside Looking In!
I Love this President!
Another thread here:
Why should taxpayers foot the bill to feed these nasty freeloaders? Put the money toward The Wall, or to provide gifts for veteran families.
Nice find - side-by-side, awesome effect.
So, Trump was supposed to host a party (at taxpayer expense) for the very people who hate him and are actively seeking his destruction??
You see, corrupt and evil MSM, this is how one is NOT hypocritical.
That isn’t all that needs to be cancelled when it comes to the commie-controlled MSM. For a press conference, they should just get a single page typed handout....that’s it....nothing more.
Whoops, more evidencet of Trump’s continuing pattern of obstruction of justice. He’s toast. /s
