Another day, another embarrassing gaffe from US President Donald Trump.

A video taken at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll shows the President signing caps for supporters in the crowd.

One child may have been left a little disappointed.

"Will you sign my hat?" the child asks Trump who takes the littler red cap and signs it.

Rather than hand it back to the child he chucks it into the crowd to shouts of "No!".

"Here you go, kids, here," he says as he takes another cap to sign.

He throws that one out into the crowd too and says, "Hopefully it can.  Whose hat?"

Trump had earlier given a speech beside the Easter Bunny and told the assembled crowd of children that the US would "be stronger and bigger as a nation than ever before."

The event also saw Press Secretary Sean Spicer posing for pics with the Easter Bunny.

A decade ago, while working in the office of the US Trade Representative, Spicer had accompanied then President George Bush to the Easter Egg Roll - in the Easter Bunny costume.
