On his 200th day in the White House, President Trump returned to Twitter to tout what he views as victories and declare that he will be working hard during his vacation in New Jersey.

Our Washington bureau reporter Alberto Pimienta has the story.

The New York Times story that Vice President Mike Pence is looking at a potential run for the presidency came out on Saturday.

The report also mentions other potential Republican rivals in 2020, including Ohio Governor John Kasich and U.S. Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas. The article notes that other Republicans may not challenge the President for his seat, but are preparing in case he can’t or doesn’t run in the next presidential election.
