Donald Trump today offered to reopen the White House to the public, saying he would cover the cost of conducting White House tours.
The offer was in response to a tweet by Newt Gingrich, who suggested Trump could afford to splurge for the tours and should do so.
“It sounds reasonable to me. Why not?” Trump said on “Fox and Friends,” the Fox News morning program. “It’s always been open, and it’s certainly not a lot of money.”
Appearing as a co-host on the show, Fox News contributor Eric Bolling said staging the tours costs about $74,000 per week. Trump did not say for how long he might foot the bill.
