Good Morning DC! It's Tuesday, and for the first time since the pandemic, Senate Democrats will dine together, in the same room, the first sign that slowly but surely, America is coming back to normal. 

Yesterday, Nikki Haley stated that she would support Donald Trump, should he decide to run in 2024. The same Nikki Haley said recently that the GOP made a mistake with Trump. "We need to acknowledge he let us down," Haley stated in an interview for Politico. "He went down a path he shouldn't have, and we shouldn't have followed him, and we shouldn't have listened to him. And we can't let that ever happen again."

In the weeks following the events of January 6, it looked like the Republicans were turning their backs to Trump, with Congressman Adam Kinzinger waiting in the wings to replace Trump's America First with his Country First. After the GOP fundraiser that happened over the weekend, those who worked hard to see Trump gone are worried about Trump's ability to galvanize the support post-January 6. 

Last night, Trump issued a rebuttal of the CNN story that claimed Congressman Matt Gaetz asked for a meeting with Trump at Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, but was denied.

 "This is completely false," said former President Trump. "Why doesn't CNN investigate and write about lightweight Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell, who had a torrid and physical relationship with the Chinese spy Fang-Fang, but is somehow on the once-prestigious House Intelligence Committee," Trump deflected. He added that "Swalwell, who ran for President and dropped out with a record-setting 0% in the polls, has been compromised and is a national security threat to the United States—he should be removed from the Committee immediately!"

As the vaccination progresses in the United States, FDA and CDC issued a statement this morning recommending an immediate pause in the use of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine after six women between the ages of 18 and 48 developed blood clots within two weeks of getting the vaccine.

What will Biden do today?

At 11:00 a.m., President Biden will pay his respects in a Congressional Tribute for U.S. Capitol Police Officer William Evans as he lies in honor in the Capitol Rotunda. Evans was killed earlier this month when Noah Green, a follower of Nation of Islam, rammed a barricade at the U.S. Capitol. 

At 2:00 p.m, President Biden and VP Harris will meet with the Congressional Black Caucus members in the Oval Office. 

At 12:30 p.m. Press Secretary Jen Psaki will brief the press. 

Biden wants Christine Wormuth to be the first woman to lead the Army. Wormuth is the director of the RAND Corporation's international security and defense center in Washington D.C.

Since you told us that you love our daily dash of pop, we have learned that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have asked for shared custody of their four children and will each pay for their legal bills. 

And that's a wrap for this Tuesday morning, April 13, 2021.Thanks for waking up with me. Good Morning DC will be back tomorrow to bring you the latest first.
