Donald Trump pledges 'big rally' to mark 100 days in office

Ironically, one theory posits that Trump's ascendance to the presidency began at the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner. "Look forward to it!" he tweeted on Saturday. The president announced the event, saying: "Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania".

Trump's decision to skip the correspondents dinner and hold a rally on the same night as the event may put White House reporters in a tough spot, forcing them to choose between attending the black-tie dinner and covering Trump's rally in Pennsylvania.

The announcement came a day after Trump dismissed the importance of the 100-day mark as a "ridiculous standard".

U.S. existing home sales hit 10-year high in March
Sales were up 5.9 percent from a year before, based on seasonally adjusted annualized figures, and up 4.4 percent from February. Existing-home sales in the Midwest showed a similar path, up 9.2 percent to 1.31 million, with a median price of $183,000.

Mr. Glassner said the rally, which will be the fourth in recent weeks, will review Mr. Trump's accomplishments since taking office in January.

But there's a certain diversionary feel to his timing for the latest visit to a key swing state he won in defeating Hillary Clinton previous year - including that there could be a federal government shutdown starting that day. He was the first Republican to win the Keystone State since 1988.

In 2011, Trump attended the gala and was the subject of a few jokes from former president Barack Obama and Seth Meyers. During the campaign he even released a "100-day action plan to Make America Great Again".
