The Democratic National Committee (DNC) will host daily events next week focused on different crises they say President Trump's "chaos has created or made worse," featuring high-profile Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Why it matters: These events will serve as Democrats' counter-programming around the Republican National Convention, which starts Monday.

What we're hearing: The Biden campaign and the DNC are increasingly leaning into "chaos" as an argument against Trump.

  • Several speakers, including Michelle Obama, Bill Clinton and Kamala Harris used that word during their remarks at the Democrats' own convention this week.

Details: Democrats said they'll offer a video press briefing during each day of the RNC, anchored by specific themes and surrogates:

  • On Monday, Rep. Val Demings of Florida will talk about families in crisis dealing with everything from childcare to seniors and Social Security.
  • On Tuesday, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey are addressing the economy.
  • On Wednesday, Speaker Pelosi will talk about health care.
  • On Thursday, Pete Buttigieg will discuss challenges facing the country.

Between the lines: Democrats aren't looking to Biden to be the central voice of their counter-programming in the way that Trump was during the DNC, tweeting or doing cable news call-in interviews.

  • The DNC War Room, which acts as their Trump research department, will release digital and TV ads in battleground states focused on similar themes.

The Trump White House on Tuesday gave President-elect Biden access to daily presidential intelligence briefings, a source familiar with the matter tells Axios.

Why it matters: Trump has refused to share the briefs until now, as he continues to challenge the result of the election and declines to concede. The president's acquiescence comes as another sign that the transition to a Biden administration is taking place.

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp pushed back on Saturday after President Trump pressed him to help overturn the state's election results.
