Mensagem:  In some cases, like the ones you pointed out, it's totally acceptable the use of the present because the situation hasn't changed. I was told that Lula is the president of Brazil. I told you it is acceptable. Check this out. Yesterday was Thursday. John said: I will go to the movies on Saturday. Today, on Friday, I tell you: John said he will go to the movies tomorrow. In this case it's acceptable, but I would prefer "would" instead of "will".
