White House Chief of Staff John Kelly apparently wasn't thrilled about my story last Sunday revealing the president's liberal use of "Executive Time" — a three hour block carved into his private schedule every morning for tweeting, watching TV and making phone calls.

Since then, the White House has implemented new security measures on the president's real schedule, so I'll share less detail with you this week.

Here's what we know so far for POTUS:

  • Monday: Hold for travel to Washington D.C.
  • Tuesday: Trump to meet with the president of Kazakhstan.
  • Wednesday: The President will attend the Congressional Gold Medal ceremony honoring Sen. Bob Dole.
  • Thursday: In the morning, Trump will meet with senior military leadership at the Pentagon. There's a "TBD" travel to Pennsylvania.
  • Friday: The president hosts a March for Life event; and there's a "TBD" travel to Florida.

And for Congress:

  • House and Senate Republicans need to come up with a plan to avoid a government shutdown on Friday.
  • The Senate expects to vote Tuesday on 702/FISA reauthorization — national security legislation to enable foreign spying to prevent terrorism.
  • Steve Bannon and Corey Lewandowski will appear before the House Intelligence Committee this week discussing Russia and the Trump campaign

Investors are ignoring the coronavirus pandemic by buying stocks and gold

U.S. economic data is crumbling as increasing coronavirus cases keep consumers at home and force more cities and states to restrict commerce, but the stock market has continued to rise.

What's happening: Bullish fund managers are starting to lay down bets that it will be this way for a while. "The reason is: You have monetary and fiscal policy pushing the economy out of a problem and that is very, very bullish," Andrew Slimmon, senior portfolio manager at Morgan Stanley Investment Management, tells Axios.

How Trump's push to reopen schools could backfire

The Trump administration’s full-steam-ahead push to fully reopen schools this fall is on a collision course with the U.S.' skyrocketing coronavirus caseload and its decades-long neglect of public education.

Why it matters: Getting kids back to school is of paramount importance for children and families, especially low-income ones. But the administration isn’t doing much to make this safer or more feasible.

Coronavirus squeezes the "sandwich generation"

As the coronavirus poses risks and concerns for the youngest and oldest Americans, the generations in the middle are buckling under the increasing strain of having to take care of both.

Why it matters: People that make up the so-called sandwich generations are typically in their 30s, 40s and 50s, and in their prime working years. The increasing family and financial pressures on these workers means complications for employers, too.
