President Donald Trump has tweeted his regrets to the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner, but wishes "everyone well and have a great evening".
The announcement comes on the heels of his staff's controversial move Friday to bar a handful of major news outlets from participating in a gaggle with White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
Mr. Trump's announcement also comes after reports that Bloomberg had made a decision to not host an afterparty event after the dinner this year and CNN was reportedly debating whether to attend the dinner.

Later Friday, news organizations including The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, CNN and Politico were blocked from joining an informal, on-the-record White House press briefing. Several prominent news organizations had already announced that they would not be hosting their after parties or attending the dinner. Bloomberg-whose owner, Michael Bloomberg, has called Trump a "dangerous demagogue"-normally co-hosts the afterparty with Vanity Fair, so presumably that event is now well and truly dead". The president attends each year. CNN, frequently criticized by Trump, has been contemplating sitting out the dinner. The president traditionally speaks as well. Obama attended all eight events while he was in office.
