Trump Celebrates First Easter Egg Roll As US President

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. This year's 139th Easter Egg Roll is Trump's first Easter celebration after being hailed as the President of the United States.

"This is the 139th Easter Egg Roll. Think of it, 139," Trump said when he welcomed the participants of the events. The US President, his First Lady Melania, together with their son, Barron, joined the guests as they rolled the colorful hard-boiled eggs across the lawn of the White House's backyard.

The annual Easter Egg Roll is expected to be the largest social gathering in the White House every year. However, unlike the biggest celebrity guests during President Barrack Obama's administration such as Justin Bieber, Beyoncé and Ariana Grande, only the Easter Bunny and Trump himself were the star attractions during the recently concluded Easter Egg Roll, Politico reports.

After his less than a hundred days in service to the White House, Trump delivered his conviction in strengthening the United States under his administration. "We will be stronger and bigger and better as a nation than ever before. We're right on track," Trump said according to a report by the NBC News.

On the other hand, Trump also expressed his heartfelt thanks to his wife, Melania, in being the instrument for the planning and preparing towards the success of this year's Easter Egg Roll. He said that the First Lady has worked for long just to make the event a perfect one and in line with how they want to be. He thanked and congratulated Melania as a lot of people are going to experience a great time in attending the Easter Egg Roll.

The attendees this year are relatively smaller compared to the 37,000 kids and adults during the previous year when Obama was still seated as the President of the states. However, Stephanie Grisham, Communications Director of Melania Trump, confirmed that this year's smaller crowd was actually part of the plan. According to Grisham, kids who attended the previous Easter Egg Rolls in the White House were not given the chance to enjoy all the activities as the grounds were too crowded.
