Trump family kicks off Easter egg roll

In commemoration with the time-honored tradition in the country, US President Donald Trump welcomed thousands of kids and adults in the yearly celebration of the Easter Egg Roll in the South Lawn of the White House.

The Easter Egg Roll dates back to 1878 and the presidency of President Rutherford B. Hayes.

With Trump's relationship with the public already in question, the Easter Egg Roll would prove as an opportunity to convince other's that he is one with the American people.

The egg rolling event, which dates back to 1878, was smaller than previous years - down from the 35,000 people who got tickets last year - but retained such activities as a reading nook where messages can be sent to USA troops.

Trump offered his two-word prescription when asked by a reporter at the White House Easter Egg Roll for his message to North Korea after its failed missile launch.

Mr Trump takes it, signs it with a marker, and tosses it into the crowd, rather than hand it straight back to the child. Donald Trump did not break from tradition today, completing many of these activities.

"Come for Melania Trump's not-so-subtle elbow to get Donald Trump to place his hand over his heart - but stay for Attorney General Jeff Sessions reading to a group of kids".

There have been stylish first ladies throughout the history of the USA, there have even been first ladies who were ex-models, but is Melania Trump (née Knauss) the hottest?

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. While still a large crowed, it was significantly smaller than the previous year's attendance, which drew in an estimated 37,000 people.

According to the White House website, the Easter Egg Roll is expected to end just before 7 p.m.
