(Reuters) - Highlights of the day for U.S. President Donald Trump's administration on Monday:

JARED KUSHNER

The Senate Intelligence Committee is seeking to interview Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, as part of its investigation into ties between Trump associates and Russian officials.

Trump will announce that Kushner will oversee a broad effort to overhaul the federal government, a White House official confirms.

NUCLEAR TALKS

The United States, Britain and France are among almost 40 countries that will not join talks on a nuclear weapons ban treaty starting at the United Nations on Monday, says U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

LIBYA

Italy will push for greater U.S. involvement in fostering stability in Libya when Trump and other world leaders meet in May, Italy's deputy foreign minister says.

HEALTHCARE

The Republicans failed to overthrow Obamacare last week, but there are plenty of ways they can chip away at it; the Trump administration has already begun using its regulatory authority to water down less prominent aspects of the 2010 healthcare law.

CLIMATE CHANGE

A 2015 global pact for fighting climate change will benefit in some ways at least if Trump carries out a threat to pull out, backers say, in a shift from gloom about the fate of a deal that took two decades to negotiate.

ITALIAN VISIT

Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni will meet Trump in the United States on April 20, diplomatic sources say.
