The Daily Countable: Take Action Today!

FRIDAY, JUNE 16, 2017

Good morning, CountaFriends!

What a week, huh? Congratulations to the Democrats in the House for their win last night at the Congressional Baseball game and to the Republicans for their graciousness in defeat. Here’s hoping that sense of collegiality will last until Monday.

The president, meanwhile, heads to Miami to talk about Cuba policy. And like so many policy choices, there is talk of how it will benefit the Trump Organization. We’ll update you on the policy and all its implications later in the day.

I just hope he eats a Cubano. Best sandwich in the world. Totally the greatest. A great, great sandwich.

The President: MIAMI, FL

  • The president flies this morning to Miami, FL. He will offer remarks this afternoon on changes to U.S. policy towards Cuba.

The House of Representatives: OUT OF SESSION

  • All House votes were canceled in light of this week’s shooting. Also, there are quite a few hamstrings to ice after last night’s Congressional Baseball game.


  • The Senate is just taking the day off.

What to Watch

  • Also, hey! The President’s Commission on Combatting Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis will broadcast remarks at 12:30 PM EDT. Watch it here.

  • President Trump will give a speech on change to U.S./Cuba policy at 1:10 PM EDT. Watch it here.

Be well, CountaBears!
