Two pint-sized tots dressed as President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for Halloween got to meet the life-sized ones on Sunday, as the commander-in-chief welcomed children to the White House to celebrate with candy, pumpkins and a costume parade.
The president and first lady greeted children from the South Portico, waving to the costume-clad kids as they walked by.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, some changes needed to be made to the spooky festivities, including that the Trumps were unable to personally hand out candy to the children.
Instead, guests were given candy as they walked past the White House on the South Lawn. All children older than two-years-old were also required to wear a mask. Any staff giving out candy also wore gloves.
Costumes ranged from unicorns, to dinosaurs, to superheroes, to what appeared to be the president and first lady’s favorite outfits of the night, a young boy and girl who dressed up as them.
Upon seeing the kids, the commander-in-chief motioned for the two to come over and turn around so they could all take a photo together.
The mini first lady went on to do her best impersonation of the actual first lady.
Later on, a young girl walking past the Trumps dressed as a princess lived up to her costume of choice, looking directly at the cameras facing the White House and waving as she made her way past — never once noticing the president behind her.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, a fairly new mother herself, brought her daughter Blake to the party. The baby girl was dressed as a mouse and also got a picture with the president and first lady.
