Good Wednesday Morning,

Here is what’s on the President’s agenda today:

  • In the morning, President Donald J. Trump will receive his daily intelligence briefing.
  • The President will then meet with National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster.
  • Later in the morning, the President will speak with Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said of Oman by telephone.
  • In the afternoon, the President will have lunch with service members. The President will then attend a Cabinet Affairs meeting.

I’ve got a compact Morning Briefing for you this morning.
