View the President's Schedule

Downstairs early for a last min. report of any happenings that might have taken place overnite—then into the St. Dining room for the Sperling breakfast. It went well & the Q’s. were better than they are at a press conf.

Met with Dem. & Repub. Committee chairmen & leaders whose committees will be voting on Nicaraguan aid. I asked if they could (failing support) pass the issue out to the floor without a recommendation—we’ll have to wait & see. Geo. S. came in for a meeting. He’s ready to battle all the way for the aid. We all came together on another matter—arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Geo. thinks he has headed off a lobbying effort by the Jewish Congress & we have word the Israeli govt. will not actively oppose us.

Over to E.O.B. to address about 150 Presidents of major Jewish organizations—Subject Nicaragua. Very well received. Met with our speechwriters on the T.V. speech on Nicaragua. We agree on 15 min. length. Some tapings for different groups—all on Nicaragua. We’re making a full court press. Then wound up day with a meeting—Sen. & House Repub. leaders—this time on the ’86 election.
