Donald Trump famously announced that he would be skipping this year's White House Correspondents Dinner, the annual event at which the press and various comedians gather to roast the Commander in Chief.

He went on to slam several global agreements he has either criticized or pulled out of - including the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which he withdrew the U.S. from, and the Iran nuclear deal, which is under review.
