White House tours are back on

The White House will be open to the public once again starting this week.

First Lady Melania Trump said in a statement last month that the tours will resume tomorrow. The process was put on hold until the First Lady hired someone to run the White House Visitors' Office. Not only were citizens upset about not being able to tour the Executive Mansion, but so were many members of Congress, who depend on exclusive tour tickets for constituents, lobbyists, and donors.

The pause in the tours are not exclusive to Donald Trump’s tenure. There were two times during the Obama administration that tours were halted as well. The last was in 2013.

If you are interested in taking part, you must ask your Congressional representative and can book it three months in advance.
