This Is Why President Trump Skipped The Oscars

Trump honored the Army Chorus while the Marine Band played jazz in the White House foyer, according to White House pool reports.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump skipped the Oscars to honor the military and the nation’s governors at the Governor’s Ball at the White House.

Meanwhile, Oscar winner Viola Davis told the audience at the awards ceremony Sunday evening that actors “are the only profession that celebrates what it means to live a life.”

The president also took a photo with the Army Chorus in the White House chamber.

In a statement earlier Sunday, Melania stressed that the event was a time to come together and put politics aside.

“Tonight, we come together as one nation, leaving political labels and partisan interests behind,” Melania said.
