Emanuel’s Monday meetings are with Obama and:

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to discuss designating Pullman as a national historic park.

Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald to discuss his push to end vet homelessness.

HHS Secretary Sylvia Matthews Burrell, who he knows from their time together in the Clinton White House, to discuss early childhood education issues.
