President Donald Trump greeted the children of his staff and the White House press corps in Rose Garden on April 26, signing red MAGA hats and White House press cards.

“Honestly, the children ask me better questions, if you want to know the truth,” Trump joked. “Your parents are being very nice right now, I can’t believe it! Because they don’t want to embarrass themselves in front of you. You understand that? They’re being so nice I can’t believe it.”
