It’s no secret President Trump doesn’t like reporters and he’s not afraid to say so. Even to their kids.

During “Take Your Kid to Work Day” on Thursday, White House correspondents’ children got to interact with Trump (and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders gave them a press briefing that their parents weren’t invited to).

“It’s a very special day, officially called take our daughters and our sons to work day, right? That’s the politically correct term, and we always have to be politically correct, right?” Trump said, according to USA Today. “I even love the media today, I see these beautiful children, products of the media, and I actually like you much more than your parents.”

He also joked that media photographers take bad pictures of him.

“Sometimes I think they do it on purpose actually,” he said. “Always my chin is pulled in, I look terrible, but that’s ok.
