On Politics A.M.: Democrats Seek to Undercut Trump’s Defense

The House impeachment managers took aim at central elements of the president’s defense.

Good Friday morning. Before we get to the news in Washington and politics, we have some news of our own.

Beginning Monday, we’re revamping the On Politics A.M. newsletter as the 2020 primary season gets underway to bring you the latest campaign analysis, insights and news from our political reporters and Times correspondents around the country.

Our goals are to take you inside the state of the race each morning and to illuminate the candidates, ideas, places and voters who will help shape and determine the elections in November. The writing, design and photography will give the newsletter a new feel, and it will keep evolving. As always, we will bring you links to the day’s top news stories in politics and Washington.

We hope you’ll enjoy it, and we’d love to hear your feedback.

Now, here are some of the stories making news today.

  • Mr. Trump lashed out at Democrats on Thursday over their impeachment efforts on his first morning back in Washington since his trial in the Senate began hearing the arguments against him.
  • As he runs for president, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. has repeatedly faced questions about the overseas business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden. He has mostly kept his cool — but not always.
  • A day after the president suggested to an interviewer at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland that he was open to cutting entitlement programs in a second term, Democrats pounced and Mr. Trump insisted he would protect Social Security.
  • The president’s advisers have urged him not to pay attention to the low-polling Democratic candidate Michael R. Bloomberg. But when an ad from Mr. Bloomberg appeared on Fox News, Mr. Trump couldn’t resist lashing out.
  • Marianne Williamson, the self-help author and former Democratic presidential hopeful, endorsed Andrew Yang on Thursday. Well, kind of — in Iowa, at least. She also said Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders “would make spectacular presidents.”

Today’s On Politics briefing was compiled by Isabella Grullón Paz in New York.
