Handy hint: Melania prompts Trump on national anthem protocol as Twitter implodes

The event organised by the First Lady to get families together, featured games like rolling the eggs across the White House lawn with wooden spoons, making greeting cards for American troops, aside from Melania reading "Party Animals", a story by the television personality Kathie Lee Gifford while children sat on the grass.

"So proud of my lovely daughter @TiffanyATrump she offered to read a story to the children today @WhiteHouse and will be sharing sweetness", Mr Trump's ex wife, Maples, said. President Donald Trump and his family put their stamp on the Easter Egg Roll. Her dress was flawless for the occasion, fitting to what is celebrated in the season. This year's 139th Easter Egg Roll is Trump's first Easter celebration after being hailed as the President of the United States.

Melania Trump spoke to the crowd prior to the festivities.

Mr and Mrs Trump were joined on the balcony of the White House on Monday (local time) by son Barron, 11, Gunnery Sergeant Sara Sheffield and the Easter Bunny. "We're right on track", he said, speaking of the nation's strength under fewer than 100 days of his leadership.

There was, however, some speculation about whether the Trumps would be able to pull off a successful "egg-stravaganza".

"As we renew this tradition, thank you for joining us on behalf of the president and Barron". It was his first Easter egg roll, and he said while he and his father, Jack, waited for Trump to appear that the experience had been "great". 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.

Also on hand for the event were the president's two older sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, along with their families.
