Earlier this week, Melania Trump announced that White House tours to the public would resume. They had been shut down since the inauguration due to a lack of staffing during the transition.
Much to the public’s delight, the First Lady announced “I am excited to reopen the White House to the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come each year.”
“The White House is a remarkable and historic site and we are excited to share its beauty and history,” she added.
So excited it would seem, that the President himself dropped in on a few of the first guests to visit his new residence.
Via Fox News Insider:
New video aired moments ago on “America’s Newsroom” shows President Donald Trump surprising a group of tourists at the White House.
“Work hard, everybody. Work hard,” he told the stunned school-children.
Trump called for some of the kids to come over to greet him and 10-year-old Jack Cornish, of Birmingham, Alabama, ran over to pose with the commander-in-chief.
Cornish is a fifth-grader at Briarwood Christian School.

Many of the 40-50 visitors were thrilled to see President Trump himself on the tour.
Then of course, there was the look on this young lady’s face:
Despite the joy in the occasion, there were some frightening moments. Particularly the following part of the tour when an ominous shadowy figure loomed just over Trump’s shoulder.
No, not the angry looking fella with the camera. We’re talking about the ominous shadowy figure hanging from the wall. Do you see it?
Still, the overall mood of the President’s surprise appearance was joy and excitement for those kids who will never forget this moment.
