Washington, D.C–

Today marked another day in history at the White House as President Trump and wife Melania hosted around 30,000 people to the annual White House Easter Egg roll, a tradition that dates back to 1878.

This year, it seemed to go off without any incident like last year and most of the President’s family was in attendance to watch him interact with kids rolling eggs on the lawn and Melania to read to the kids in attendance as well.

He said his family has helped keep the White House in “tippy top shape.” He also took a moment to tout the administration’s impact on the country’s economy and boost in funding the nation’s military.

“Our country is doing great, look at the economy look at what’s happening,” said Mr. Trump. “Nothing is ever easy but we’ve never had an economy like we have right now.”

During his time on the lawn with the kids at a coloring session the President was asked about DACA and turned to reporters with an answer.

“The Democrats have really let them (DACA recipients) down,” said Mr. Trump. “They’ve really let them down, they had this great opportunity, the Democrats have really let them down it’s a shame, and now people are taking advantage of DACA and that’s a shame. Should have never happened.”

Shortly after Trump finished his coloring session he headed off towards his family that included Don Jr, Eric Trump and Tiffany and kids. Melania then proceeded to head for the reading station for kids before the first family left the grounds for the afternoon.
