President Obama said his administration was looking at ways to resume White House tours for school groups.
“This was not a decision that went up to the White House,” noted Obama in an ABC News interview aired on Wednesday, saying the directive came from the Secret Service.
“What I’m asking them is: are there ways for example for us to accommodate school groups who may have traveled here with some bake sales. Can we make sure that kids potentially can still come to tour,” Obama added.
The president said that the Secret Service had faced a difficult decision over whether to suspend the tours after sequester cuts took effect.
