President Donald Trump surprised a group of visitors to the White House by taking time to greet them—shaking hands and posing for photos.

The day after the great celebration on Independence Day, the president had time to greet the members of the large group of visitors.

“This is a big crowd, and we had a fantastic crowd last night,” said President Trump, referring to the visitors as well as the participants of the big Salute to America, which brought tens of thousands of Americans together on July 4 between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, according to the Fox10 Phoenix video.
