President Trump says he'll mark 100 days with Pennsylvania rally

"Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania".

Trump had already broken with tradition by announcing, in February, that he wouldn't attend the April 29 roast-y dinner with the journalists he so forthrightly dislikes.

Further details about the event have yet to be revealed.

The rally will take place on the same day as the annual White House correspondents' dinner, which the President has declined to attend. The rally marks Trump's 100th day in office. Trump has called several news organizations "fake" or the "enemy of the people" and repeatedly said The New York Times is "failing".

Members of the media and political pundits have been using the 100-day standard to measure presidents' success since President Franklin Roosevelt's first term in 1933.

US home sales rise shoot up to 10-year high
Existing-home sales in the South rose 3.4% in March to an annual rate of 2.42 million and are 8.5% higher than March 2016 sales. Sales hit a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.71 million last month from a downwardly revised 5.47 million in February.


Trump himself talked repeatedly about his first 100 days when he was campaigning past year.

Mr. Trump didn't elaborate on what the rally in Pennsylvania will entail. He was the first Republican to win the Keystone State since 1988.

April 29 is also the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner in Washington.

As many quickly pointed out, Trump himself had often referred to the 100-day marker as an important point of his presidency. "Looking forward to seeing our bravest and greatest Americans!" he tweeted.
