President Donald Trump has squeezed babies on the campaign trail, handed out candy to young trick-or-treaters at the White House, and complained about the media to the children of the White House press corps in the Oval Office.

“I actually like you much more than your parents,” Trump told the children of reporters in April.

Here are some highlights of Trump’s photo ops with kids:
