The White House said Monday that President Trump will attend the Gridiron Club's annual dinner on March 3, marking his first appearance at a press dinner since taking office. Trump skipped both the Gridiron dinner and the White House Correspondents Dinner last year.

Correction: A previous version of this story and its headline stated that Trump was also planning to attend this year's WHCD after the Daily Mail reported, "Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders replied 'yes,' when asked if Trump would attend the annual April affair." But Sanders released a statement saying no decision has yet been made regarding the WHCD.
