View the President's Schedule

9 A.M. Brkfst. in St. Dining room with about 75 of our 100 Sen’s. D. & Repub. It was a good session & I think reduced some acid in the partisanship. They are even talking about a clean sweep—100 votes for tax reform.

At the office later saw our Ambas. Don Lowitz off to Geneva—he is in charge of our efforts to get an agreement on chemical warfare.

George B. & I lunched on the patio then he took off for the hill to preside over the Sen. which was taking up the matter of overriding my veto of their resolution to prevent the Saudi arms sale. About 2:30 when the dust settled my veto was upheld 34-66. For me that’s a big win.

Some desk work then photos with the Admin. office staff & the Office of Admin. Then the Asthma & Allergy poster child—a handsome 9 yr. old. And that ended the day before Camp D.
