President Trump claimed his 100-day rally in Pennsylvania on Saturday night broke attendance records, though journalists pointed out rows of empty seats at the expo center where the event was held.

Trump held his rally in Harrisburg, Pa., instead of attending the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner. He mocked media members attending the dinner as “trapped” at what he called a “very, very boring” event.

"They would love to be with us right here tonight," Trump said, adding his rally drew a “much larger crowd, and better people, too.”

Trump routinely brags about the size of crowds at his rallies and accuses the media of lying about the crowd size, including for his presidential inauguration in January.
