Donald Trump has relentlessly insulted CNN since he began his candidacy for President. The news network has finally struck back by announcing that they will not attend the annual Christmas Party the White House hosts for the press. A CNN spokesperson told POLITICO:
CNN will not be attending this year's White House Christmas party. In light of the President's continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests. We will send a White House reporting team to the event and report on it if news warrants.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded with a Trump-style tweet:
Twitter users' responses were swift — and somewhat divided.
