POTUS To Pass On Kennedy Center Awards

The White House has said that President Donald Trump and the First Lady will not participate in festivities honoring recipients of this year’s Kennedy Center Arts Awards. The announcement indicated the decision to break from the norm was made to “allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction.”

The decision comes one day after the whole membership of the President’s committee on Arts and Humanities resigned in opposition to Trump’s comments regarding last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.
