ABC News’ Mary Bruce (@marykbruce) reports:

After spending Tuesday in Dover, Del., paying tribute to the 30 U.S. service members killed in Afghanistan over the weekend, President Obama will spend today behind closed-doors at the White House.

Obama will meet separately with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. The president, who continues to wrestle with the struggling economy, was originally scheduled to meet with Geithner Tuesday, but their meeting was postponed for Obama’s Dover trip.

This evening, the president will host his third Iftar dinner at the White House celebrating Ramadan. The dinner continues a tradition started under President Clinton and continued by President George W. Bush.

Invited guests include elected officials, religious and grassroots leaders in the Muslim American community, and leaders of diverse faiths.
