President Donald Trump will start his day with the presidential daily briefing provided by the intelligence community.
At noon, the president will sign a Memorandum Regarding the Investigation Pursuant to Section 232(B) of the Trade Expansion Act which will likely require the State department to start a “232” investigation into imports from a certain country (China?) to determine if the quantity or price of certain trade goods (steel?) are detrimental to the United States.
President Trump will finish out his public schedule by welcoming, meeting with and holding a joint press conference with Italy’s Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
