President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump invited children to their Halloween celebration at the White House in Washington, DC, on Sunday, October 25, 2020.
Trump and the first lady were tickled to see a boy dressed in a Trump costume.
The holiday celebration comes weeks after President Trump recovered from a mild Covid-19 infection. Melania recently made her first public appearance after testing positive for the coronavirus. They are both immune to the virus.
President Trump returned a youngster's salute as Melania looked on. The first couple maintained social distancing behind a row of flowers. Hand sanitizer was placed out for children and their parents.
Some children wanted to get up close and personal with the Trumps, who were amused at children walking right up to them despite the barrier.
Neither Trump nor the first lady wore face masks as they welcomed the children to their home. Due to Covid-19 they did not hand out candy to the children. Instead, bags of goodies were set up on tables off to the sides for families to pick up during the event.
