View the President's Schedule

A day with a schedule so full I couldn’t read the memos on my desk. Spoke to & lunched with broadcasters from all over the country. Met with 6 Islamic country Ambassadors. They are all fired up about the tragedy in Jerusalem. A demented young man opened up on the Mosque full of worshippers killing a number of them. This started 3 days of bloody riots. I plead with them to recognize this as the act of a deranged individual not the act of a govt. I think I made some headway. Meetings of every kind went on all day. Finally 2 back to back receptions for “Eagles.” Sen. Packwood made a speech in Oregon picking on me as the enemy. And he’s the chairman of our Sen. campaign committee.
