Stateside, the GOP elected to pull the American Health Care Act bill, designed to replace the Affordable Care Act, late on Friday. Later on in the week, President Trump welcomes Prime Minister of Denmark Lars Lokke Rasmussen to the White House.

In New York City, a graduation ceremony for the newest members of the city's police department was held at the famous Madison Square Garden. In Washington, D.C., people (and puppies) flocked to see the annual blooming of the cherry blossom flowers.
