WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is visiting a classroom at a private, religious school in Florida on Friday, signaling that his education agenda will focus on school choice.

He started his tour of St. Andrew Catholic School in Orlando with a visit to a fourth-grade classroom.

Trump shook hands with a pair of students who told him they were learning about the history of Florida.

He then joked to one girl who said she wanted to own her own business that she's "gonna make a lot of money. But don't run for politics."

Trump was joined on the tour by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
