On Politics A.M.: Trump’s Iran Strategy Could Cost Him in 2020

Part of President Trump’s appeal reflected his criticisms of America’s entanglements abroad.

Good Tuesday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today.

  • In the 10 days since it carried out the drone strike that killed Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the Trump administration has been struggling to draft an after-the-fact narrative to justify it. But when Mr. Trump tweeted that an explanation “doesn’t really matter” because of the general’s “horrible past,” he bolstered critics of the strike.
  • Russian hackers are targeting the Ukrainian gas company at the center of Mr. Trump’s impeachment. Security experts suggest Russia may be looking for the same kind of damaging information on the Bidens that Mr. Trump sought from Ukraine.
  • Attorney General William P. Barr declared that the deadly shooting last month at a naval air station in Pensacola, Fla., was an act of terrorism, and he asked Apple in an unusually high-profile request to provide access to two phones used by the gunman.
  • Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts said on Monday night that Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont told her in 2018 he did not think a woman could win the presidency. Mr. Sanders has denied making the remark.
  • For almost two decades, Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey has been viewed as a future leader in the Democratic Party. But on Monday, that promise remained unfulfilled, as Mr. Booker ended his campaign for the White House.
  • Six Democrats will debate in Des Moines tonight — the smallest stage yet in the 2020 race. Join our reporters for a live chat on nytimes.com beginning shortly before 9 p.m. Eastern time. In the meantime, here’s a guide to the debate.
