Diary Entry - 05/24/1985

Friday, May 24, 1985

We had an N.S.C. meeting on the whole subject of Central Am. I’ve asked all the Cabinet members present—dept. heads etc. to come back within the month with ideas on how we can more effectively help our Latin Am. friends up grade their economies, create opportunities for entrepreneurship etc. We are providing (our govt.) 61% of all the funding to Central Am. We need to find ways to get more in the line of ec. development for that money.

Signed a bill today that rectified one of Congress’s major errors. We cancelled the requirement for detailed log keeping of use of Co. or business cars which were also privately used.

Had a meeting with Dith Pran whose story was told in the movie “The Killing Fields” & Dr. Haing Ngor, who played the part in the pic. getting an Oscar for it & his wife. They plead for help in restoring their countries freedom. I assured them we were & would do everything we could. George S. came in—we have a problem with an Ambas. we appointed at the request of one of our Congressional leaders. He has become a pain in the Anus & George wants to fire him.

Went over to the Marriott to address the N.A.M. Everything went well.

Back at the W.H. did Tapings for a banquet of the Nat. Conf. of Christians & Jews & for the Deaf Olympics to be held in L.A. That was it for the day—except for desk work.
