WHCA President Jeff Mason said the organization’s board “regrets this decision very much.”
“We have worked hard to build a constructive relationship with the Trump White House and believe strongly that this goal is possible even with the natural tension between the press and the administration that is a hallmark of a healthy republic,” Mason said in a statement.
Event organizers said the event would go on as planned. The dinner takes place April 29.
