‘Don’t be politicians!’ Trump advises & surprises kids, then brings them to Spicer for ‘fun’ WH press briefing

Powered by Topple

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer led an off-the-record press briefing with a very different group of reporters on Thursday.

Spicer met with a group of children at the White House’s “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day,” hosting a mock press briefing and answering their questions.

The children, whose parents are mostly White House staff and journalists with the White House press corps, engaged with Spicer in the meeting, with one young boy asking about the president’s plan to renegotiate NAFTA.

President Trump surprised the youngsters when he joined them as they were lining up for a photo outside near the Rose Garden.

“Don’t be politicians and don’t be reporters. Lead a normal life,” the president advised the kids.

He spent some time taking photos, signing autographs and talking with the children.

Trump, who was joined by Vice President Mike Pence, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Spicer, made a few playful jokes about the children’s parents.

“How do we get your parents to like Trump better?” he asked them, laughing.

“Do we like or love your parents?” the president asked the kids at one point. “Love!” they shouted back.

“Good, we’re safe,” he replied.
