Summary

4 minutes.Democrats plan to portray President Trump, Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as the three villains defining the three branches of government for the 2020 campaign.The three targets are already apparent: Pelosi's coming focus on McConnell emerged from Democratic divisions over how to run against the president, plus their fears that "Trump fatigue" could give their attacks diminishing returns.Between the lines: Pelosi believes there's a ceiling on how much the party can shift public opinion on Trump, aides say, noting that his approval rating has remained steady.A day after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for the drone attacks on Saudi Arabian oil plants, President Trump tweeted: "There is reason to believe that we know the culprit, are locked and loaded depending on verification."Why it matters: The attacks "provide stark evidence of the vulnerability of global crude supply in an age of disruptive technologies," Bloomberg reports.In the first UAW strike in 12 years, about 46,000 hourly autoworkers are walking off GM factory floors and joining picket lines.The context: UAW's GM members are steaming about GM's November decision to "unallocate" five plants in the U.S., Axios' Joann Muller reports from Detroit.GM, the largest U.S. automaker, said in a statement that it is still willing to work to reach a deal to build "a strong future for our employees and our business."In Hong Kong, the protests are back — and violent.
