White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders cut her briefing short Friday afternoon for a special announcement: The children of the reporters were invited to the Oval Office for a visit with President Donald Trump.
After she finished answering questions from reporters, Sanders told reporters she had “one last announcement.”
“The president asked me to let all of you know that those of you that have your kids here for trick-or-treating,” Sanders said. “Before they go over to the executive office building for trick-or-treating, he’s invited them to come into the Oval.”
The White House held its annual Halloween festivities Friday. Kids from over 20 schools from Maryland, Virginia and District of Columbia were in attendance. Also invited were military families and community organizations.
“So if you would like to have your kids participate, please meet us here and we’ll walk them over shortly and then give them back to you so that you can sugar them up and take them home to your house to run wild,” Sanders joked.
Once in the Oval Office, Trump invited the children to come behind the desk as he joked with them and handed out candy.
“I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children,” Trump said. “How the media did this, I don’t know.”
About 10 kinds dressed in costumes were in attendance. There were children dressed as witches, Batgirl, Star Wars characters and even a unicorn in attendance.

As the children gathered around the desk, Trump continued to make jabs at the media, saying their kids get treated by them better than “anybody in the world.”
“Oh you’re going to grow up to be like your parents?” Trump asked as he waved his hands in an unsure motion.
“Don’t answer, that can only get me in trouble, that question,” he joked.
