Attending the dinner has been a presidential tradition since it began in the 1920s, Wallace said.

The last president to miss the dinner was Ronald Reagan in 1981 -- soon after he was shot in an assassination attempt. Reagan was still able to call in however.

Wallace said Trump need allies in Washington so it would have been a good decision to attend.

"You never know who you're gonna need and when you're gonna need them," Wallace said. "I'm not sure I quite understand the wisdom of setting up these barriers."
