Trumps to skip Kennedy Center honorsU.S. President Donald Trump and his wife Melania will not attend as planned the upcoming Kennedy Center Honors.

"The President and First Lady have decided not to participate in this year's activities to allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement to Variety Saturday. "First Lady Melania Trump, along with her husband President Donald J. Trump, extend their sincerest congratulations and well wishes to all of this year's award recipients for their many accomplishments."

"The Kennedy Center respects the decision made today by the office of the President of the United States. In choosing not to participate in this year's Honors activities, the Administration has graciously signaled its respect for the Kennedy Center and ensures the Honors gala remains a deservingly special moment for the Honorees," Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein and President Deborah F. Rutter said in their own joint statement. "We are grateful for this gesture."
