Good Monday morning.

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

  • The President will then meet with his Cabinet.
  • In the afternoon, the President will have lunch with Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson.
  • Later in the afternoon, the President will meet with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

Two U.S. Marines apply modern know-how to an ancient craft - a round woven boat borrowed from a fisherman near Chu Lai, South Vietnam on Nov. 20, 1965. The Marines, on a patrol near the fishing village, borrowed the boat to cross the river two at a time and secure the opposite bank. The boat, maneuvered by two long unwieldy oars, is woven from rattan and reeds. (AP Photo/John T. Wheeler)
