President Trump's Tuesday morning Tweetstorm was in direct response to what he watched on "Fox & Friends." From his son-in-law Jared Kushner, to the health care vote and Sen. John McCain's return to Washington, here's how Trump's tweets line up with this morning's episode of "Fox & Friends":

Jared Kushner

"Fox & Friends" aired both Kushner's statement at the White House Monday, where he said he didn't collude with Russia, as well as Lara Trump's Monday night appearance on "The Story" where she commended Kushner for his transparency.

Trump's tweet: Jared Kushner did very well yesterday in proving he did not collude with the Russians. Witch Hunt. Next up, 11 year old Barron Trump!"

John McCain

"Fox & Friends" hosts discussed how Sen. McCain, who is undergoing treatment for brain cancer, is returning to the Senate today for this week's health care vote.

Trump's tweet: "So great that John McCain is coming back to vote. Brave - American hero! Thank you John."

Health care

"Fox & Friends" discussed several different aspects of the Senate's health care vote this week. They aired a clip of Trump speaking last night about "repealing Obamacare," a woman struggling under the current health system, and later had Sen. Rand Paul and newly-appointed Press Secretary Sarah Sanders as guests to speak about the upcoming vote.

Trump's tweets: "Big day for HealthCare. After 7 years of talking, we will soon see whether or not Republicans are willing to step up to the plate!" ... "ObamaCare is torturing the American People.The Democrats have fooled the people long enough. Repeal or Repeal & Replace! I have pen in hand." ... "This will be a very interesting day for HealthCare.The Dems are obstructionists but the Republicans can have a great victory for the people!"

Online shopping and e-commerce have been chipping away at brick-and-mortar retailers over the years and the combination of the coronavirus pandemic and the 2020 holiday season may prove to be a knockout blow.

State of play: Anxious consumers say financial concerns and health worries will push them to spend less money this year and to do more of their limited spending online.

California to independently review FDA-approved coronavirus vaccines

California will "independently review" all coronavirus vaccines approved by the Food and Drug Administration before allowing their distribution, Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced at a news conference Monday.

Why it matters: The move that comes days after NAID director Anthony Fauci said he had "strong confidence" in FDA-approved vaccines could cast further public doubt that the federal government could release a vaccine based on political motives, rather than safety and efficacy.
