President Donald Trump welcomed the children of White House reporters into the Oval Office on Friday for some early Halloween treats.

The president dispensed plenty of confectionery and compliments to the costumed youngsters.

Trump called the children “beautiful.” And he congratulated their parents for doing a good job – at least of raising kids if not in their coverage of the White House.

Trump also asked the youngsters how they get treated by the press. He predicted it’s better than “anybody in the world.”
