View the President's Schedule

Mermie’s birthday. Big day at the office, too. Jesse Jackson, his family, Lt. Goodman (released by Syrians) & his family came to Oval office. Jesse’s debriefing on his hours spent with Pres. Assad was most interesting. He believes (& so do I) that Assad could be sending a message. J.J. said he talked at length about wanting to establish a relationship with me. We all trooped out to the Rose Garden for photos etc. It was a good day. A string of meetings followed—with Congressmen re the proposed budget for ed.—we aren’t too far apart. Then a budget meeting on possible alternative tax structures. None of them looked good to me. Then a meeting with George S. & Bud M. The Soviets have indicated they would like a back door set up for private communications (as we proposed). Things may be looking up.
