President Trump, who is spending the next two weeks at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, with a morning tweetstorm:

The failing @nytimes, which has made every wrong prediction about me including my big election win (apologized), is totally inept! ... The Trump base is far bigger & stronger than ever before (despite some phony Fake News polling). Look at rallies in Penn, Iowa, Ohio ... and West Virginia. The fact is the Fake News Russian collusion story, record Stock Market, border security, military strength, jobs. ... Supreme Court pick, economic enthusiasm, deregulation & so much more have driven the Trump base even closer together. Will never change! ... Hard to believe that with 24/7 #Fake News on CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NYTIMES & WAPO, the Trump base is getting stronger! ... Working hard from New Jersey while White House goes through long planned renovation. Going to New York next week for more meetings.

What to watch: The president's favorite morning news show, Fox and Friends, mentioned the NYT only once, a story about Vice President Mike Pence and 2020.

In her first sit-down interview since being named Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris talked about what she'll do to fight for women if elected VP, and how the Democrats are thinking about voter turnout strategies ahead of November.

What they're saying: "In a Biden-Harris administration women are going to be a priority, understanding that women have many priorities and all of them must be acknowledged," Harris told The 19th*'s Errin Haines-Whack.

Facebook goes after Apple

Facebook is seeking to force a face-off with Apple over its 30% in-app purchase commission fee, which Facebook suggests hurts small businesses struggling to get by during the pandemic.

The big picture: Facebook has never publicly gone after Apple, a key strategic partner, this aggressively. Both companies face antitrust scrutiny, which in Apple's case has centered on the very fee structure Facebook is now attacking.
