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.

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.
