Even a 141-year-old White House tradition can't stop President Trump from bringing up his favorite subject.
On Monday, the president and first lady Melania Trump hosted a few hundred kids on the South Lawn for the annual Easter Egg Roll. EPA head Andrew Wheeler read a book to kids and perhaps mentioned Earth Day, the first lady organized some #BeBest hopscotch, and Trump himself bonded with one child over a coloring sheet. Yes, as the White House pool reporter at the event recounted, Trump "looked up at one point while coloring the cards with the kids and said one of the children told him to build the wall."
Trump at the Easter Egg Roll, per pool:
Child to POTUS: (can’t hear exact question but on border wall)
POTUS: “it’s happening. Keep building that wall, can you believe that?”... “He’ll be a conservative someday.”
