CBS's John Dickerson asked Trump what he knows on Day 100 of his presidency that he wishes he knew on day one:

Trump: "Well, one of the things that I've learned is how dishonest the media is, really... NAFTA, as you know: I was going to terminate it, but I got a very nice call from a man I like, the president of Mexico.

"I got a very nice call from Justin Trudeau, the prime minister of Canada. And they said: Please, would you rather than terminating NAFTA — I was all set to do it. In fact, I was going to do it today. I was going to do it as we're sitting here....

"But they called up and they said, 'Would you negotiate?' And I said, 'Yes, I will negotiate.' ... But the media didn't cover it that way. The media said, oh, I didn't terminate NAFTA."

The second day of the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump will see a full day of opening arguments from Democratic House impeachment managers.

What to watch for: Democrats now have 24 hours — spread out over three days — to take their time to lay out their case against the president's alleged abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. It'll also allow them to highlight gaps that could be filled out by additional witnesses and documents from the administration.

This post will be updated with new developments as the trial continues.

Why it matters: Homelessness in the U.S. was on the decline after 2010, but it started to increase again in 2016 — and without moves to address the affordable housing crisis driving the issue, we can expect it to keep getting worse, experts say.
