Trump Hosts Surreal White House Easter Egg Roll


Share this article


Donald Trump has hosted the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, leading to some unusual scenes at Pennsylvania Avenue.

Thousands of people - including many children and their families - attended the 140th annual event yesterday.

President Trump addressed the crowd from a balcony - standing alongside his wife Melania and a costumed 'Easter Bunny'.

He struggled to describe the White House itself, saying: "I want to thank the White House Historical Association and all of the people that work so hard with Melania, with everybody, to keep this incredible house or building, or whatever you want to call it - because there really is no name for it.

"It is special - and we keep it in tip-top shape. We call it sometimes tippy-top shape. And it’s a great, great place."

He also briefly spoke about the economy and military funding before heading down and joining the crowd for the festivities.
