WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump will hold a campaign rally in Wisconsin on the night of the annual White House Correspondents Association dinner in Washington.

Trumps re-election campaign announced Tuesday that the rally will be held April 27 at Green Bays Resch Center. Trump eked out a narrow victory in the state in 2016.

The president has bucked tradition and skipped the annual black-tie affair every year since taking office. He recently said for the third year in a row because its so boring and so negative. He said he would hold a very positive rally instead.

Presidents and first ladies have traditionally attended the dinner. Its a fundraiser for college scholarships and an occasion where politicians, journalists and celebrities mingle. Journalism prizes are also awarded.
