President Donald Trump will start his public schedule by meeting with National Economic Director Gary Cohn. The president’s morning is unusually empty which may indicate an announcement of some type. (FBI Director?) Then again, the press office may have just omitted the daily briefing that usually occurs at 10:30 just to spite you.
Trump will then greet and meet with President Juan Manuel Santos of Columbia for most of the afternoon.
Presidents Trump and Santos will hold a joint press conference in the East Room just before 4 pm eastern time. A live stream will be made available on CDN.
