President Trump has announced that the White House is now open for tours, but hold, the foreign tourists are excluded. British and Canadian visitors were recently met with resistance when planning their visits to the White House.
The tourists were instructed to contact their embassies in Washington, who in turn contacted the State Department and were told, unless you are a legal citizen of the United States, you will not be allowed to get close to the presidential residence.
The Canadian embassy in Washington then released the following statement: "The US Department of State has advised us that, at present, access for foreign citizens to White House tours as part of an Embassy-sponsored public tour group, is on hold. We are therefore unable to process any requests at this time."
