President Trump Hosts 21000 to His 1st Easter Egg Roll

First Lady Melania Trump joined the president, along with their son Barron, to kick off the 139th White House Easter Egg Roll. As the Washington Post noted, this year's White House Easter Egg Roll was Melania Trump's chance to show her event-planning talents.

How cute was this year's White House Easter Egg Roll?

The White House Easter Egg Roll event is a tradition dating all the way back to 1878.

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.

Donald Trump attended an Easter church service Sunday at Bethesda-by-the-Sea, an Episcopal church near his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach where he and Melania Trump were married in 2005.

The president's approval rating has not topped 50 percent since he took office on January 20, Reuters/Ipsos polling shows. Tom Price vacated the seat earlier this year after being confirmed as secretary of health and human services.

This year, due to rain in the forecast, the White House had announced that the event would be somewhat curtailed, with only 20,000 guests on hand rather than the more than 35,000 of previous years. Military bands, a pop-rock band and a family circus performed for the crowd.

1 President Trump, the first lady, Barron Trump, and the Easter Bunny addressed the crowd from the Truman Balcony. She has been working on this for a long time to make it ideal and we wanted to keep it just right, but before she speaks, I want to congratulate her on this wonderful day we're going to have.

"As we renew this tradition, thank you for joining us".

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

Wells Wood Turning, who manufacture the eggs, tweeted the White House just weeks ago to find out if the roll was going ahead.
