WATCH: Trump Surprises White House Visitors as Tours Resume
New video aired moments ago on "America's Newsroom" shows President Donald Trump surprising a group of tourists at the White House.
"Work hard, everybody. Work hard," he told the stunned school-children.
Trump called for some of the kids to come over to greet him and 10-year-old Jack Cornish, of Birmingham, Alabama, ran over to pose with the commander-in-chief.
Cornish is a fifth-grader at Briarwood Christian School.

First Lady Melania Trump announced a few weeks ago that the tours would be resuming today.
"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," she said in a White House statement.
The president greeted about 40-50 tour-goers, who could be heard screaming with excitement, on a lower floor of the White House.
Coincidentally, a portrait of the former First Lady, Hillary Clinton, loomed right above Trump as he stopped to wave to the crowd.
