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

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 Easter Egg Roll event - hosted by the first lady - brought 21,000 people to the White House Monday morning.

This year's entertainment included military bands, Martin Family Circus, who reportedly played to a mostly empty lawn for much of the morning, and relatively under-the-radar boyband Bro4.

Speaking at this year's event, he said: "This is the 139th Easter Egg Roll". The Easter Egg Roll dates back to 1878, when President Rutherford B. Hayes opened the gates to the Executive Mansion.

"This is the 139th Easter Egg Roll".

As the annual event got underway on the White House grounds, President Donald Trump stood beside the first lady and their son Barron on the Truman Balcony. "We're right on track, you see what's happening and we are right on track".

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. It was just made smaller, down from the 35,000 people who got tickets past year, but retaining such activities as a reading nook, an area to send messages to USA troops and an entertainment stage.

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.

Moments later, Trump blew a whistle three times, each time sending groups of youngsters scurrying to deftly use a wooden spoon to maneuver their dyed egg several yards across the finish line. Trump, the first lady, and Barron joined kids to color cards to send to United States service members.
