Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], Mar. 05 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump and mediapersons exchanged spirited jokes and satirical remarks at the annual dinner of the Gridiron Club and Foundation, here on Sunday.

According to Sputnik, Trump admitted, while attending the dinner, that he was very eager to "ruin" the event in person by receiving an invitation for it. "Nobody does self-deprecating humor better than I do. It's not even close," he added.

"You can't be impeached when there's no crime. Put that down!" Trump said in reference to Vice President Mike Spence allegedly asking every morning if Trump had been impeached yet, with him being next in line for the presidency if Trump's critics succeeded in ejecting him from office.

The president also made remarks about his former chief strategist Steve Bannon, who according to Trump, "leaked more than the Titanic," and Attorney General Jeff Sessions who "recused himself" after Trump "offered him a ride over."

However, a few hours before the dinner Trump tweeted that "mainstream media in the US is being mocked all over the world," attaching a link to a story about alleged media attacks against Trump and his family. (ANI)
