Trump abruptly cancels traditional White House Christmas party for reporters: Fox News

President Donald Trump has reportedly squashed a decades-long tradition by canceling the annual White House Christmas party for members of the media.

Fox News’ Howard Kurtz reports that the Christmas party has become “a victim” of Trump’s “increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.”

Just because the annual media Christmas party is canceled doesn’t mean that no one in the media industry will be going to the White House for holiday festivities, however, as Kurtz reports that “selected media people generally favorable to Trump, including a few Fox News hosts” have been invited to “a full panoply of other parties this holiday season.”

Trump this year has regularly labeled the press as the “enemy of the people,” and the White House also went through a failed attempt to revoke CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s White House press pass.

Dan Helm, a candidate for Supervisor of Elections in Pinellas County, sent a letter to the State Attorney of Orange County outlining the allegations.
