Numerous families travel from all parts Maryland, Virginia, and beyond, just to enjoy the day at the White House and with the first family. I hope you have a great time, with many activities.

"I'm really concerned for the Trump people, because they have failed to fill some really vital posts, and this thing is all hands on deck", Bates said.

We're going to do cards for soldiers in a little bit, Melania and Barron and myself. She also delivered Easter baskets and gifts to domestic violence victims in Florida over the weekend.

"We will be stronger and bigger and better as a nation than ever before", he told his guests.

A military band was on hand to perform for the guests and White House personnel and volunteers worked "tirelessly" to create a "memorable" experience for all concerned.

The annual White House Easter Egg Roll, a tradition dating to 1878 and the presidency of President Rutherford B. Hayes, kicked off this morning at 7:30 a.m.

US housing starts fell in March; still stronger than in 2016
Residential starts decreased 6.8% to a 1.22 million annualized rate from a 1.30 million rate in February. Permits were up most significantly in the West, although the strength was entirely in multifamily units.

Melania also read Kathie Lee Gifford's "Party Animals" at the reading nook. Trump described the kids as "highly, highly competitive" and predicted they'd have successful futures. "[Melania Trump] is super thoughtful and she takes her time with things ... her team is awesome".

In contrast to Michelle Obama's Easter Egg Rolls, were no celebrities in attendance at the 2017 event.

Politico shared a clip of Mr. President signing a fan's hat, then appearing to throw it randomly into the crowd while the fan yells "No!"

The irony of Donald Trump's Slovenian-born wife Melania gently nudging the president during the American National Anthem has not been lost on the eagle-eyed Twitteratti, who have been reacting to the viral moment.

In fact, the President's wife will take on additional responsibility soon. Welcome to the White House. "Barron asked some of his school friends to come and see him at the White House ..."

So, Melania, thank you very much.
