President Donald Trump in a fundraising email sent out Tuesday took aim at his political opponents and journalists — and announced that instead of attending the White House Correspondents Dinner, he intends to hold a “deplorables” rally in Michigan.

A screenshot posted by Washington Post columnist Catherine Rampall includes an imaginary conversation between Trump and staffers asking him if he plans to attend the annual dinner, which he did not attend last year. In response, the president says he “would not want to be stuck in a room with a bunch of fake news liberals who hate me.”

As Mediaite reported, the email also includes an invitation for “one patriot” and a friend to donate to the president’s 2020 reelection campaign in exchange for a raffle for VIP tickets to a “deplorables” rally in Washington, Michigan the night of the event.

“While the fake news media will be celebrating themselves with the denizens of Washington society in the swamp that evening,” Michael Glassner, the Trump campaign’s chief operating officer, told CNN, “President Trump will be in a completely different Washington, celebrating our national economic revival with patriotic Americans.”

During the White House Correspondents Association dinner in 2017The Daily Show‘s Hasan Minhaj offered striking humor and criticism of the president as host of the event, which included references to then-senior aide Steve Bannon being a Nazi.
