The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Poland’s NATO Hopes, Deadly Damascus Car Bombings and Canada’s Big Day

    The Week Ahead: The Championships of tennis begin Monday just outside London on the grass courts of Wimbledon. On Tuesday, six living U.S. presidents will read the Constitution on HBO’s “The Words That Built America” for Independence Day. And on Wednesday and Thursday, President Trump will visit Poland, where it’s hoped he’ll reassure Eastern European NATO members that America will help defend them.

    Know This: Three car bombings in Syria’s capital, Damascus, have killed at least seven people. President Trump lashed out at the “fake news” media again Saturday while speaking to a military veterans’ gathering at Washington’s Kennedy Center. Thousands of protesters marked Hong Kong’s 20th anniversary of mainland Chinese rule as China’s president swore in its first female leader and warned against challenging Beijing’s authority. And Canada celebrated 150 years as a nation while indigenous people protested.
