"I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children," The Hill quoted Trump as saying in the Oval Office, surrounded by about 10 kids, who were dressed up in costumes ranging from Princess Leia to Batman.
"How the media did this, I don't know," he said.
The kids then gathered around the President who continued to crack jokes about the White House press corps.
"Do you know who they are? They're the friendly media," he said gesturing toward the cameras. "That's the press."
"These are beautiful, wonderful children," he said later. "You gonna grow up to be like your parents? Mmm, don't answer. That could only get me in trouble, that question."
The first lady Melania Trump's office said in a statement that the White House Halloween Party will include "bats and orange pumpkins with profiles of past presidents," adding, "Fog will fill the air, and the trees and south facade will be lit with different colors throughout the night." (ANI)
