With a portrait of then-first lady Hillary Clinton looming over his right shoulder, President Trump surprised a group of visitors Tuesday on the first public tour of the White House since the inauguration.
Trump was greeted with boisterous applause and cheers from the group of about 50 tourists, mostly children, who were gathered in the basement of the White House residence.
Shortly after 9:30 a.m., the president dropped in on the tour and then motioned for some of the children to join him for a picture. Only 10-year old Jack Cornish from Birmingham, Ala., was brave enough to take Trump up on his offer.
After taking a picture with Cornish, a 5th grader at Briarwood Christian School, the president left the group to resume their 45-minute tour.
