Subject: Pool Report #3 — updated week-ahead

The White House asked pool to send out this updated week-ahead.

The only change I notice from the one this morning is an omission of DHS rollout of the VOICE office Wednesday.

From the White House:


Saturday, April 29th will mark the 100th day of the Trump presidency. Throughout this week President Trump will continue to deliver on his promises to the American people, from thinking big about exploration and discovery again, to protecting the farmers and ranchers that feed our country, to reasserting American power on the world stage. Members of his Cabinet will travel outside the beltway, spreading the President's message across the country.

On Monday, the President will speak with NASA astronaut Dr. Peggy Whitson about the importance of empowering women to pursue educations and careers in STEM fields as she sets the record for the most time spent in space of any American. He will also host a working lunch with Ambassadors from the countries on the United Nations Security Council. That evening, he will attend a reception with conservative media, honoring his commitment to opening up the White House to a more diverse set of media outlets, followed by dinner with Senator McCain and Senator Graham. Secretary Chao will be visiting the Ohio State Transportation Research Center.

On Tuesday, he will give remarks at the National Holocaust Memorial Museum's National Day of Remembrance. Later that day, he will host a roundtable discussion with farmers and sign an Executive Order to protect and provide relief for rural America. We also expect Secretary of Agriculture-designate Gov. Perdue to be sworn-in on this day, another promising step for our nation's farmers and ranchers. That evening, the President will have dinner with Senator Corker. SBA Administrator McMahon will travel to Orlando for a roundtable with Hispanic business owners.

On Wednesday, the President will be outlining principles for tax reform. In addition, the White House will host Senators for a briefing with four principals on North Korea. The principals will be Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis, the Director of National Intelligence Coats, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Dunford. The White House will also hold a regional media day where Cabinet officials and White House Senior Staff will be made available for interviews with local television and radio stations from across the country. Secretary Carson will be in Columbus, Ohio for a listening tour on urban housing.

On Thursday, the President of Argentina will come to the White House for an official visit. He will also be signing an Executive Order with respect to Veterans (he will be moving the press conference to the week after). Both Secretary DeVos and Secretary Zinke will be on the Hill meeting with members and committees.

On Friday, the President will move our country even further toward our goal of energy independence by signing several Executive Orders on energy. This builds on previous executive actions that have cleared the way for job-creating pipelines, innovations in energy production, and reduced unnecessary burden on energy producers. This will bring the total number of executive orders signed to 32. The most executive orders signed by a President since WW II. He will also give remarks at the National Rifle Association's Leadership Forum in Atlanta, Georgia. Secretary Tillerson will chair the United Nations Security Council and then-confirmed Secretary Perdue will wrap up a multi-day trip to Wisconsin.

And on Saturday, the President will speak straight to the people about these achievements and the countless other successes of his first 100 days in office with an official event and one of his signature America First rallies.

In addition to launching a web page dedicated to the first 100 days, the White House will also be producing graphics, videos, and other digital content for the President's massive online following to share.

Throughout the week the President, Cabinet  officials, and senior White House staff will be accessible to media from the national level to the local and everything in between. Officials will be available for interviews at the regional media day and will host background briefings and receptions all week long.
