Trump says Obama is behind protests and leaks

But Trump said he's fed up with the negative stories based on anonymous sources.

In 2011, Trump became the center of Former President Barack Obama's jokes in his White House Correspondents' dinner's speech.

Or will Trump aim for a brighter, more inspiring image of the challenges we face?

"We will be substantially upgrading all of our military, all of our military, offensive, defensive, everything, bigger and better and stronger than ever before", stated Trump at a February 24 conference. Trump's decision not to break bread with the media is not a huge surprise considering how how wholeheartedly he and the White House have embraced open combat with anyone who publishes journalism that is critical of him or his administration. Noting Trump's Twitter announcement, Mason calls the dinner "a celebration of the First Amendment and the important role played by an independent news media in a healthy republic".

On the campaign trail, Trump repeatedly discussed the need to resupply a depleted military.

The White House Correspondents Association released a statement today saying, "The WHCA board is protesting strongly against how today's gaggle is being handled by the White House".

"This budget follows through on my promise on keeping Americans safe", he said.

That's why Trump says he's not going, at least. Chaos around the travel ban, Michael Flynn's resignation as national security adviser and the withdrawal of federal nominees have raised concerns with some GOP lawmakers about Trump's leadership, and they'll be looking to his speech for reasons to feel more confident.

But in a tweet, President Trump said political talk -- specifically healthcare reform -- would be on the table at tonight's dinner.

Administration officials, speaking on condition of anonymity at the White House's insistence, spoke about the bid to boost military spending by about 10 percent on Monday, the same day that Trump promised a "historic" increase in the defence budget.

But instead of movie stars, the guests invited to the White House tonight are the nation's governors.

Again, where the money is to come from is anyone's guess, especially as the White House and congressional Republicans pursue tax cuts.

He said his budget proposal will also keep tax dollars in the United States to help veterans and first responders.
