As Halloween 2017 approaches, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump welcomed children to the White House to take part in a Trick-or-Treat event. In response, critics of the president [VIDEO] made sure to poke fun at the first couple on social media.

Trump's Halloween

Inside the Oval Office last week at the White House, members of the media brought their children to take part in a Halloween event where their children trick-or-treated and received candy. When the children, dressed in various costumes, met with Donald Trump, an uncomfortable atmosphere was created by the president who proceeded to throw shade at the press, while using their own children in the process.

One young girl appeared to cry, while the former host of "The Apprentice" stated, "I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children." While giving candy to those at his desk, the president relied "You have no weight problems." Trump then went on to ask the children if they were "going to grow up to be like your parents," before retracting his question and saying, "Don’t answer. That can only get me in trouble." Trump received predictable criticism from those who have opposed his presidency [VIDEO], which led to the first couple handing out more candy to children, this time outside the White House, as reported by NBC News on October 30.

Along with his wife Melania Trump by his side, Donald Trump met with dozens of children looking for early Halloween candy at the White House.

The event came just hours after the news broke that three men linked back to Trump's 2016 campaign had ties to Russia, as the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller heated up. Former campaign manager Paul Manafort and his now former assistant Rick Gates were the first to be charged, and have since plead not guilty. However, former Trump campaign aid George Papadopoulos decided to plead guilty on charges of lying to authorities. As expected, the administration has pushed back.

Twitter reacts

In response to the news of the day and the first couple taking part in another Halloween gathering, critics of Donald Trump and his administration wasted no time firing back. "Trick or Treason..." one tweet read.

"He's so awkward with children dear God!" an additional Twitter user added.

"Oh happy day! Trick or Treat! I have a subpoena for you!" yet another tweet read.

"FINALLY a job he's qualified for, greeting trick or treaters and passing out candy," a social media user wrote. "Shouldn't they be huddling with their lawyers?" one tweet asked. As critics poured on the trolling, Donald Trump and the White House continued to deny any wrongdoing in regards to alleged collusion with Russia.
