President Donald Trump and his family put their stamp on the Easter Egg Roll.

It will be interesting to see if The Donald insists, much like with the inauguration, that it was the biggest Easter egg hunt ever.

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.

Apparently the crowd was smaller than in past years, but that was apparently largely due to the shortage of White House staff to host the event, positions the Trumps have yet to fill.

The 46-year-old, hostess of the 139th annual White House Easter Egg Roll took their venue on the White House South Lawn, reported on Hollywood Life.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer attended the egg roll with his family.

First Lady Melania Trump is someone American people expect to excel in the field of fashion.

The former billionaire property developer's easter egg roll, an event which dates back to 1876, was also said to be significantly less well-organised than his predecessor's events.

Activities at the event include a "Bunny Hop" stage and a reading area, along with a station where kids can whack eggs with wooden spoons.

The new-ish First Lady broke from tradition by deciding to stay at Trump Towers in NY to allow their son Barron to finish his school year. He, the first lady and Barron also joined kids at a table to color cards to send to USA service members.

Her senior adviser Stephanie Wolkoff said: "Mrs. Trump is honoured to serve this country and is taking the role and responsibilities of the First Lady very seriously".

Costumed characters roaming the grounds included Elmo from "Sesame Street", Dr. Seuss' Cat in the Hat, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and some of the Racing Presidents, who are mascots for the Washington Nationals of Major League Baseball.
