Trump says U.S. 'on track' to be 'stronger' during Easter Egg Roll

Tweets About The White House Easter Egg Roll Are Hilarious

The White House may have just witnessed the weirdest Easter Egg Roll annual celebration ever under Donald Trump's rule.

"On behalf of the president and (our son) Barron, we wish you great fun and lovely days coming ahead of us", Xinhua news agency quoted the first lady as saying. "We're right on track".

Melinda Bates, the director of the White House Visitors Office under President Bill Clinton, told CNN it is "the single most high-profile event that takes place at the White House each year, and the White House and the first lady are judged on how well they put it on".

Melania and Barron had both raised their hands to their hearts as a sign of respect, but Trump's mind appeared to have wandered elsewhere.

During an address to the crowd ahead of the roll, Trump said the USA will be "stronger and bigger and better" than before during his presidency.

It's an event at the White House that brings out thousands of families for fun, colorful eggs, and a few games.

Melania Trump spoke to the crowd prior to the festivities.

Melania also spoke to wish everybody "great fun and handsome days coming ahead of us". The President who seemed to have forgotten to raise his hand to his heart immediately like Melania Trump and Barron Trump did, was given a quick reminder by the First Lady. In the weeks leading up to event - planning falls unto the First Lady and her staff - the White House spoke of a scaled back celebration, estimating 21,000 guests would attend (last year, 35,000 people attended Barack Obama's final event).

He said that the First Lady has worked for long just to make the event a ideal one and in line with how they want to be.

Trump's older sons, Don Jr. and Eric, and their wives, and daughter Tiffany also attended.
