(Washington, DC) -- He was happy to have the press present for the cat fight in the Oval Office he had with Democrats over border wall funding.
But now, President Trump is canceling the annual White House Christmas Party for the press. The President is skipping the decades-old tradition this year.
Trump held the Christmas party for reporters last year, but refused to pose for pictures at the event.
It's not the first time Trump has skipped an event involving reporters - he has twice refused to attend the White House Correspondents Dinner, which has been attended by every president since Nixon.
