View the President's Schedule

Sam Nunn & John Warner (Sens.) came in at 9 A.M. They have authored a defense bill that had gotten off track but now has been corrected & I believe I can sign it. It has been passed.

N.S.C.—was a briefing for meeting with P.M. of Israel—Shamir. He arrived at 10 A.M. & we had a good meeting. I assured him of our continued friendship and told him of my plan to address Gorbachev on matter of Soviet Jewry.

Then a meeting with Geo. S. who is leaving for Geneva to try & pin down the details of the I.N.F. treaty.

The schedule got turned inside out—the 2 P.M. N.S.P.G. meeting was moved up to 11 A.M. It was a discussion on START treaty which will be feature of Summit. There are still differences among us on some of the goals we should go for.

After lunch—A. B. Culvahouse deposited a pile of reading on my desk—Q’s & suggested answers for Judge Walsh who is investigating Iran-Contra. Then at 2:45 Howard B. brought in Jim B. & Jim M.—We have an agreement on the deficit.

At 3 P.M. the Cong. leaders came in & at 3:15 we all joined the negotiating teams in the cabinet room. A discussion & decision that we were united on the agreement. Then at 3:30 we went into the press room & I made a statement. We took Q’s & everything went well. Some desk work & upstairs.
