“Next Saturday night I will be holding a BIG rally in Pennsylvania,” the president announced on Twitter Saturday. “Look forward to it!”

Though the event is not listed on his campaign website yet, it will take place on the same night of the White House correspondents’ dinner.

Trump announced he would skip the dinner in February because there is “no reason for him to go in and sit and pretend like this is going to be just another Saturday night,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.

“I think it’s … kind of naive of us to think that we can all walk into a room for a couple of hours and pretend that some of that tension isn’t there,” Sanders said during a television interview in February.

“You know, one of the things we say in the South [is] ‘If a Girl Scout egged your house, would you buy cookies from her?’ I think that this is a pretty similar scenario. There’s no reason for him to go in and sit and pretend like this is going to be just another Saturday night.”

Sanders said Trump would be better off “spending the night focused on what he can do to help better America.” (RELATED: Trump Will Hold His First Rally As President This Weekend)
