According to Roland S. Martin, the show must go on regardless.

And CBS correspondent Kathryn Watson even invited President Donald Trump to attend the press party still going on this Friday.

According to a Fox News report on Thursday, the party was dropped from the schedule at least in part because of the president’s relationship with the press.
