View the President's Schedule

This morning in the Rose Garden we swore in Katherine Ortega as U.S. Treasurer. She impressed me very much. Pres. Pereira of Cape Verde arrived. He is quite a guy. He started out when Cape Verde became independent as quite partial to the Soviet U. He’s changed very definitely but I’m not sure his foreign minister has. This was a busy day. Said goodbye to the Pres. & went into an issues lunch. Then addressed a group in the East Room here for Minority Business Week. Crossed the st. to the exec. bldg. & met with the crew from RKO inc. Exec’s & News Directors. From there back to the Rose Garden to kick off the Combined Fed. Charity Campaign. Back to the Cabinet room for a meeting with the Scowcroft commission. Then to the Situation Room for a meeting with Sen’s. & Reps. (bi partisan) on START strategy. A reception for returning Supreme Ct. Justices—back for a haircut & finally upstairs to the gym, the shower & off to the Heritage Foundation Dinner. Back home—the dinner was well attended including people like former P.M. Fraser of Australia, officials from W. Germany, Korea etc. Speech well received.
