Trump family hosts 1st White House Easter Egg Roll

"We will be a stronger nation than ever and we are on the right track", he said from the semicircular balcony of the White House overlooking the south garden of the residence.

Mr Trump's team was expected to hand out 18,000 wooden eggs to around 20,000 people, compared to his predecessor Barack Obama who welcomed 37,000 guests and handed out 85,000 eggs.

Mercado said: "We missed out on the lottery and received the tickets from a friend at the last minute".

Apparently the crowd was smaller than in past years, but that was apparently largely due to the shortage of White House staff to host the event, positions the Trumps have yet to fill.

Along with his wife Melania and 11-year-old son Barron, Trump's older sons, Don Jr. and Eric, and their wives, and daughter Tiffany also attended the event.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, who previously donned the Easter Bunny suit during the George W. Bush administration, happily took on the role of storyteller at this year's event.

"As we renew this tradition, thank you for joining us on behalf of the president and Barron".

Either way, it seems Mrs Trump will be a tremendous asset to her husband when she leaves her home in NY to join him in Washington. He thanked and congratulated Melania as a lot of people are going to experience a great time in attending the Easter Egg Roll.

The first lady also took part in another traditional aspect of the Easter event, reading portions of "Party Animals", written by Kathie Lee Gifford, to the kids.

President Donald Trump appears to have made a disappointing gaffe after he was caught on camera signing a little boy's Easter hat before tossing it into the crowd - instead of handing it back to the child.
