President Trump had a busy morning on Twitter, blasting everyone from the Democrats and their position on his tax reform plans, to Chuck Schumer's changing attitudes on the Iran deal.

Nod to 2020: Trump, who filed the paperwork for his re-election campaign on the day of his inauguration, also took aim at "Crooked" Hillary Clinton, tweeting that he hopes she'll run against him again.

The tweets:

Trump made it clear he was watching Fox News while firing off his tweets this AM, pointing to the former Reagan economic adviser, Art Laffer, who joined the network this morning to sell Trump's tax reform plan.

More context: Sen. Chuck Schumer also issued a statement today arguing that the "fake math" on Trump's tax cuts is a "deliberate manipulation of numbers and facts" and he said companies are already sitting on a lot of cash.

Schumer also called out Trump for his frequent touting of the stock market: "As the president likes to point out, the stock market is at record highs and companies are raking in unprecedented profits, yet wages have remained relatively flat," said Schumer. "That's proof positive that companies already have a cash windfall, but they're not using it to boost wages."

Trump then tweeted about the success of the stock market under his presidency:

He also targeted Hillary Clinton, who Nigel Farage criticized for "making a sad, sorry spectacle of herself" on Fox & Friends this morning, stating he hopes she'll run in 2020.

The global adoption of remote work may leave the rising powers in the East behind.

The big picture: Despite India's and China's economic might, these countries have far fewer remote jobs than the U.S. or Europe. That's affecting the emerging economies' resilience amid the pandemic.

Trump gives Biden access to presidential intelligence briefings

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.

AOC and Ilhan Omar want to block Biden’s former chief of staff

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar are boosting a petition against Joe Biden nominating his former chief of staff to a new role in his administration, calling Bruce Reed a "deficit hawk” and criticizing his past support for Social Security and Medicare cuts.

Why it matters: Progressives are mounting their pressure campaign after the president-elect did not include any of their favored candidates in his first slate of Cabinet nominees, and they are serious about installing some of their allies, blocking anyone who doesn't pass their smell test — and making noise if they are not heard.
