President Donald Trump used the occasion of his first 100th day in office to hold a campaign-style rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, touting his record and taking aim at the national media.
The president told a boisterous crowd of supporters that he was “thrilled” to be far away from Washington D.C. where members of the press were gathered for the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.
“As you know there’s another big gathering taking place tonight in Washington D.C., did you hear about this? A large group of Hollywood actors and Washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation’s capital right now,” Trump said. “They are gathered together for the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Without the president.”

President Donald Trump made a stop before his rally in Harrisburg Saturday to tour a Midstate factory and sign an executive order about trade.
The President signed the executive order at the Ames factory in Harrisburg. Workers there called this a once-in-a-lifetime experience and something they’ll never forget.
