View the President's Schedule

This was a day to end all days. I guess they figure they had to make up for the fact I’ll be gone until next Tues. I speak tomorrow in San Antonio—the Jaycee’s, Thurs. in L.A.—then the ranch for the weekend & Mon. the N.A.A.C.P. in Denver. I started with the usual staff briefing at 9 A.M. then breakfast with the Dem. conservatives who helped us with the Gramm-Latta bill. A Nat. Security session, more staff, interview with U.S. News & World Report, Ben Hooks & Margaret Bush Wilson of N.A.A.C.P., saw 3 Ambassadors off, Lunched with Jacque Cousteau who is a true ecologist who like me is disgusted with the eco. freaks. Meeting with Sen. Finance Comm. (Repubs.). They’ve done a good job & will have a tax bill on the Sen. floor tomorrow. A Cabinet meeting, President’s Advisory Comm. on Federalism, session with Pen James, then Bill Casey, addressed the Teenage Repubs. & a reception for the 190 Repub. Reps. from the House. It was non stop all day. Photographed all day by U.S. News. Tip O’Neil is getting rough. Saw him on T.V. telling the United Steel workers U. I am going to destroy the nation.
