Scissors snafu: Melania's Washington Monument ribbon cutting

The Washington Monument was officially reopened on Thursday by first lady Melania Trump after three years of extensive renovations.

But it appears what also needed fixing was the pair of scissors she was using.

Mrs. Trump struggled for a few moments to cut the ribbon, before handing of the pair of defective scissors to another official at the ceremony.

The monument had been closed for 37 months while renovations were performed on its elevator and security systems.
