Melania Trump: Garden for White House Veggies Will Stay”

The White House has set up a page about tours here.

"Whoever monitors twitter at WH for businessman president Trump 'when is WH going to be opened for public tours?' Mrs G wants to know", Grassley tweeted.

Trump's team also announced earlier this month that she had hired interior decorator Tham Kannalikham to redecorate the family's private living quarters in the White House, CNN says.

A spokesperson for the first lady said in a statement to CNN published February 11 that she is "committed to the preservation and continuation of the White House Gardens, specifically the First Lady's Kitchen Garden and the Rose Garden". "Previous administrations have been quick to reopen the White House doors to the public, even doing so the day after the Inauguration", they wrote.

Requests for the self-guided tours must be submitted to members of Congress. President Trump reportedly has done some minor remodeling since the January 20 Inauguration Day.
