With Halloween just days away, several members of the press allowed their children to trick-or-treat at the White House. When the children found themselves in the Oval Office, Donald Trump made sure to troll their parents in the process.

Trump on Halloween

Donald Trump kicked off his political career with a bang when he announced his plan to run for president back in June 2015. During his campaign announcement, the former host of "The Apprentice" referred to illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers." The reaction from the press was as expected, with the majority ripping into the president over his controversial remarks.

The rift between Trump and the press only got worse throughout the remaining 2016 presidential election, with the billionaire real estate mogul attacking the media and journalists, while using it as a top talking point to his supporters. Following his surprising upset win over Hillary Clinton last November, Trump's feud with the press went to another level once the current scandal involving Russia unfolded. In response, Trump has labeled any report he doesn't like as "fake news," making sure to rip into the media on an almost daily basis on Twitter. In addition to Trump, other members of the administration have clashed with reporters, including White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Presidential Counsel Kellyanne Conway.

As reported by NBC News on October 27, Trump continued to mock the press, this time in front of their own children during a Halloween outing at the White House.

On Friday afternoon at the White House, members of the press were allowed to bring their children to work and take part in a Trick-or-Treat session.

A small group of kids in various costumes made their way to the Oval Office to meet with Donald Trump, while the president couldn't resist taking at swipe at their parents in the press. "I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children,” Trump said, before stating, "How the media did this, I don’t know."

"Are you going to grow up to be like your parents?" Donald Trump asked one young girl, while adding, "Don’t answer.

That can only get me in trouble." Trump continued to make sarcastic comments about the children's parents, saying, "I bet you get treated better by the press than anyone in the world." The commander in chief concluded by saying the media appeared to do a "good job" with their children, but "hadn’t done a good job" in reporting him.

While Donald Trump finds creative and unique ways to bash the media, even in front of their own children during a Halloween event, the president is facing various issues in the White House. As members of his own Republican Party speak out against him, including recent comments from senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake, Trump is sitting on an approval rating of less than 40 percent as questions surrounding health care and tax reform remain unanswered.
