The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Trump’s UK Visit Postponed, Snap to Price Shares and the Obamas’ Book Deals

    Know This: British media reports that President Trump’s state visit to the U.K. will be postponed until October after nearly 2 million people signed a petition to cancel the trip. Two women have been charged with the murder of Kim Jong Nam. And Snap Inc. has exceeded expectations and priced its IPO at $17 a share earning it a market valuation of roughly $24 billion.

    Remember This Number: $65 million. That’s the rumored price Penguin Random House agreed to pay for the rights to Barack and Michelle Obama’s separate books — by far the biggest deal for any White House memoirs.
