This country is waiting to see what kind of role Melania Trump will play as our first lady. If the latest news is any indication, I think the American people will love her.
Melania stated, “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. I am committed to the restoration and preservation of our nation’s most recognizable landmark,” via whitehouse.gov.
The White House’s public tours are made by appointment only but are free of charge!
This is truly heartening to the America people. Touring the historic White House with friends and family is an unforgettable experience. It’s an honor to get to see the rooms in which our president works to protect this nation.
It was Obama who cut the White House tours, citing budget cuts. He argued the Secret Service required for the tours would cost up to $74,000 a week, and they had to furlough people in order to make the tours happen, according to The Blaze.
This is a very poor excuse — taxpayers paid the Secret Service’s payroll and accommodations whenever President Obama went to Hawaii, and we didn’t complain or even have a say in it! I think if the people want to tour the White House, they should be able to!
There are some schools who raise money for field trips to the White House. It’s not exactly cheap to get to D.C., and neither are the hotel accommodations, but they felt that the educational experience was worth the money.
I’m sure many schools will be pleased that Melania Trump has, once again, opened the doors of the White House to welcome the American people into our nation’s house.
Of course, the tours will have to be very strictly guarded in case liberal punks want to disturb or even attack Donald Trump. Every person wishing to go on a tour must have a valid photo ID, and no other type of identification will be allowed.
The Secret Service will also limit items that are allowed in with the tours. There will be no video recorders, bags, weapons, or potential weapons allowed. If the Secret Service feels the need to confiscate something, they will. This is to make sure everyone is safe.
It is a huge step forward that the White House is once again the people’s house. Our First Lady Melania and President Trump are making sure the people know that we come first and foremost, especially when we’re paying the tab!
