President Trump surprises group of students on White House tour

As White House tours resume, President Trump treated the first group to walk the storied halls on Tuesday with a surprise visit.

The White House announced daily tours would resume on Tuesday after a nearly seven-week pause -- an effort led by first lady Melania Trump. The president has a full schedule today including a call with Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta and meetings with GOP congressional leadership, but that didn't stop him from making a quick pit stop to greet students visiting the White House.

Watch President Trump's White House surprise in the tweet below:

The crowd burst into cheers at the sight of the president, and Trump even brought up one young male student whose facial reaction was one of clear happiness.
