President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania celebrate Halloween at the White House Monday.
The South Lawn is open to schoolchildren and parents from over 20 local schools, military families, and community organizations.
The Trumps will hand out cookies created by the White House Pastry Kitchen as well as Presidential M&M’s and other candies, while decorations include pumpkins with profiles of former presidents.
The first couple greeted, shook hands with and gave candy to a procession of youngsters on the South Lawn — including one child dressed up as Melania Trump herself.
The girl donned a black cap with “FLOTUS” emblazoned on it like the one the real first lady wore to visit hurricane-stricken Texas in August.
She also wore a white shirt, black pants, and sneakers, like the ones the first lady changed into after catching snark for wearing stilettos as she and the president first departed for Houston.
Melania Trump grinned and looked amused when she saw the costume.
Other members of the Trump administration dressed up for the occasion as well, including Education Secretary Betsy DeVos as Ms. Frizzle from the “Magic School Bus” book and TV series.
