Nancy Pelosi clapped back at President Trump after he took the unusual step of using Twitter to go after the House speaker for her interview on CBS' "60 Minutes" Sunday night.

Why it matters: While Trump has traded barbs with several Democrats on Twitter, it is unusual for him to single out Pelosi on the social media platform. Earlier Sunday, the House speaker demanded Trump remove a video he tweeted Friday showing footage of the September 11 attacks spliced with edited remarks by Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), claiming the president's "hateful and inflammatory rhetoric creates real danger."

Details: In her interview with CBS’ Lesley Stahl, Pelosi said she believed the Democratic Party could work with Trump.

"He's not worth the trouble of saying you're so horrible we can't work together. No, we need to work together. I think our future is strong enough — built on a strong foundation to withstand everything, including the current occupant of the White House."

Why it matters: Netflix experienced explosive growth during the first half of the year. It wasn't expected to match that growth this quarter, when lockdowns lifted and after new competitive services had launched, but analysts were still expecting it to meet expectations of at least 3.3 million net new global subscribers.

Why it matters: As polls indicate warning signs for both Trump and down-ballot Republicans, more GOP leaders are urging the president to stop downplaying the pandemic and to listen to advice from public health experts. Fauci is one of the most trusted voice in the country on coronavirus issues.
