The rally came as journalists attended the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner.

This is the second year the president has skipped the annual event, which brings together members of the media and government officials to raise money for scholarships.

"Is this better than that phony Washington White House Correspondents' Dinner? Is this more fun?" Trump asked the audience to uproarious applause.

"I could be up there smiling with these people, they hate your guts," Trump said.
