Even for the Trump White House, it was a surreal moment.

Flanked by unsmiling wife Melania and an Easter bunny wearing large glasses, Trump tells children — young children — about his tremondous success with the economy and $700 billion in funding for the US military:

Our country is doing great. You look at the economy. You look at what is happening. Nothing’s ever easy, but we have never had an economy like we have right now and we’ll make it bigger and better and stronger….

Our military is at a level where it has never been before….The funding of our military was so important and so many military people are with us here today. Just think of $700 billion because that is all going into our military this year.
