A chassidish child, decked out in traditional curly peyos and glasses, was easily spotted in Oval Office photos with President Trump from a Thursday visit.
He is a son of Jake Turx – the Chassidish reporter that made international headlines after getting a Trump beatdown when asking a question during a press conference with Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu last year.
The boy was wearing a signed red “MAGA” cap, and was leaning on the Oval Office desk mere feet from the President of the United States, during a tour given to children of White House journalists on Thursday.
Earlier, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders answered questions from the children during a mock press briefing, addressing Trump’s favorite animal and whether he likes candy.
Turx tweeted that his son asked a question:
My son just got called on at the White House press briefing by @PressSec @SHSanders45. His question was his own idea, and kinda epic, IMHO:
“After President Trump makes America great again, what job will there be for future presidents?”

President Trump treated the children of White House journalists to an Oval Office visit Thursday but left their parents, many of whom he criticizes, outside looking in through the windows.
“Your parents are being so nice right now. I can’t believe it,” said Trump, who regularly rails against what he calls the “fake news” media. He did so earlier Thursday during a telephone interview with “Fox & Friends.”
The president told the group of boys and girls who accompanied their journalist parents to the White House on Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day that their mothers and fathers were just being nice because “they don’t want to be embarrassed in front of all of you.”
Trump autographed caps and commemorative passes worn by the children before taking them into the Oval Office. He had asked the kids whether they wanted their parents in or out of the Oval Office. “Out!” they exclaimed in unison, and so the grown-ups were left to huddle around and peep through the few available windows.
