More than 21000 expected at Trump's first Easter Egg Roll

Trump was standing with the First Lady and their son Barron during a performance of the National Anthem ahead of the White House Easter Egg roll on Monday when he got a subtle reminder on traditional protocol.

Of the many traditions a president has to participate in, the annual White House Easter Egg Roll is certainly one of the strangest.

President Trump, the first lady, Barron Trump, and the Easter Bunny addressed the crowd from the Truman Balcony just before 10:30 a.m.

However, Trump and his family took a moment today to complete a slightly more serious activity.

It's a staple of the Presidential calendar and this was Trump's first time presiding. You see what's happening, and we're right on track. The president signs ... and then tosses the hat into the crowd.

In rare public remarks from the White House, the First Lady offered her thanks to staff, volunteers and servicemembers at the event and beyond.

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.

"It's definitely a better look with just an Easter Bunny tie so it's an honor to have this position". Trump described the kids as "highly, highly competitive" and predicted they'd have successful futures.

Melania Trump reads the children's book Party Animals, a story about celebrating differences, written by television personality Kathie Lee Gifford.

Eleven-year-old Barron, the president's youngest child, will be the first son to live in the White House since John F. Kennedy Jr.

Entertainment this year included military bands, as well as Martin Family Circus and boy band Bro4.

A total of some 18,000 Easter eggs were made available to the kids, however, by the White House.

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