Trump to watch eclipse from White House

By  | 

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump plans to watch the solar eclipse from a White House balcony.

The White House said Monday that the president and first lady will take in the cosmic spectacle from the Truman balcony on the second floor of the residence, overlooking the South Lawn.

This is the first full-blown solar eclipse to sweep the United States from coast to coast in nearly a century. Compared to the 14 states that will see a total eclipse, Washington will experience a partial eclipse.

The eclipse was expected to be the most watched and photographed in history.
