Trump skips Correspondents' dinner

AchievmentsTrump lists out achievements

Trump said "We are keeping one promise after another...delivering every single day".

He said confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch helped him remove redundancies in environmental and business regulations.

He said enhanced security helped bring down illegal border crossing.

He also listed the approval of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines as major victories for his administration.

Trump lauds China's efforts against North Korea

In a remarkable departure from his usual strong anti-China stance, Trump lauded President Xi Jinping's help in reigning in North Korea's nuclear ambitions. He said "I don't think right now is the best time to call China a currency manipulator."

FailuresFailures are because of Democrats of course

Speaking about not having repealed Obamacare yet, Trump blamed Democrat legislators for lack of support. However, he assured crowds that it would happen.

The same excuse was propped up for not having built the border-wall, along with the same reassurance.

He also said his immigrant ban had been blocked by courts, but he would find a way around them.
