President Trump tweeted last evening that he was having dinner with Apple CEO Tim Cook at the president’s club in Bedminster, N.J., and praised Cook for “investing big dollars in U.S.A.”

  • We hear that Cook planned to talk about trade/tariffs … worker training announced earlier at White House … coding education … immigration.

P.S. “Trump, who is loath to admit to sleeping — let alone taking time off — has spent his [supposed vacation] week away mixing downtime and golf rounds with meetings and dinners, intent on projecting the image that he’s been hard at work,” AP’s Jill Colvin and Jonathan Lemire report.

  • “[H]e’s surrounded by a clutch of unofficial Bedminster advisers, who have unusual levels of access to a president with the propensity for mixing business with leisure.”
  • “Does he actually play golf at Bedminster or at his better-known Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida? Yes, but it’s hard to say how much. The White House won’t say, and reporters are barred from getting close enough to see.”

From a pool report by L.A. Times’ Eli Stokols: “POTUS has one event on his schedule today, a photo op with bikers at his Bedminster estate at 2:30 p.m.”
