President Trump, First Lady Kick Off White House's Easter Egg Roll

Colored Easter eggs are ready to be used during the White House Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington Monday April 17 2017

US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania on Monday welcomed more than 20,000 children and parents to the White House to hunt for Easter eggs and participate in egg-rolling races, a tradition that dates back to 1878.

When Donald Trump supporters asked him to sign their baseball caps at the White House Easter Egg Roll, they might not have anticipated his reaction.

Several members of MLS side DC United attended the lawn party and United forward Patrick Mullins was invited to to meet Barron inside the White House.

The New York Times reported last week that planning for the event, which is the first major social draw for the First Lady's Office, had lagged, with concerns lingering over who would receive tickets, who would provide entertainment and how many people would attend. This year's 139th Easter Egg Roll is Trump's first Easter celebration after being hailed as the President of the United States.

Unlike his predecessor, who memorably read such classics as Where the Wild Things Are during his administration, Trump passed the job of reading to children on to the First Lady and the eternally beleaguered Spicer.

However Stephanie Grisham, Ms Trump's communications director, told CNN that Ms Trump deliberately kept the event smaller and less celebrity-studded than in past years.

There's also the notable lack of families of color and the PAAS-sponsored White House bunny.

The US Flag Code calls for anyone addressing the flag, either during the pledge of allegiance or the national anthem, to put their right hand over their hearts.

This brought speculation over the event to an end, after the egg manufacturers Well Wood Turning had contacted the White House via Twitter in February to remind them of the event.
