The speech in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania returns to familiar campaign themes and includes a dig at the very boring White House correspondents dinner
Donald Trump returned to familiar region on Saturday in a bullish campaign-style speech in Pennsylvania to mark his 100 days in office.
In a performance that suggested the US president was still in election mode, he reiterated his scathing attacks on the media and his well-worn pledges to build a wall, destroy Islamic State, drain the marsh and revive the military.
To loud applauds of USA, USA from the crowd, he vowed to save American healthcare and repeal disastrous Obamacare.
Trump opened the rally in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania with a dig at the White House Correspondents Dinner, which was also taking place on Saturday night, saying it would be very very boring.
Theres a large group of Hollywood performers and Washington media consoling each other in a inn ballroom in our nations capital right now, he said.
I could not perhaps be more thrilled to be more than 100 miles away from the Washington swamp, expending my evening with all of you and a much, much greater bunch and much better people.
Trump decided to hop-skip the White House Correspondents Dinner, becoming the first US leader to miss the annual occurrence since Ronald Reagan in 1981.
