Democratic strategist Jim Messina maligned President Donald Trump’s much-vaunted deal-making skills on MSNBC Friday by saying the only person who has managed to get a workable deal out of the president is his “porn star ex-girlfriend” Stormy Daniels.
On Friday’s “Deadline: White House” with Nicolle Wallace, Rev. Al Sharpton said that anyone who makes a deal with Trump had better get him to sign before he leaves the room and someone else has a chance to talk to him, because they will change his mind.
“You’ve got to stay there with him,” Sharpton said. “Don’t even let him go to the residence.”
“We’re still trying to figure that out,” Messina said. “At this point, this is a guy who wrote a book called ‘The Art of the Deal,’ now the only person that gets a deal is his porn star ex-girlfriend.”
“It’s true,” said Wallace.
“It’s unbelievable,” said Messina.

Trump border official melts down on MSNBC after refusing to admit Trump lied about ‘mass raids’
On Thursday's edition of MSNBC's "The Beat," Ari Melber confronted acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan about President Donald Trump's empty threat of "mass raids" of communities nationwide by immigration officials — and Morgan was not pleased.
"The president said there would be these mass raids. Described as thousands of arrests," said Melber. "Were there mass raids, yes or no?"
"First of all, I don’t actually call this a raid," said Morgan. "I think words matter."
"Words matter, so I’m going to get to your response," said Melber. "Were there mass raids as promised?"
DOJ policy blocking Trump from being indicted ‘factored into’ the end of the Stormy Daniels case: report
Federal prosecutors decided to close the investigation into the 2016 criminal hush money payment to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal that benefitted the Trump campaign because, in part, of the policy that prevents the indictment of a sitting president, according to a new report from USA Today citing an anonymous source.
Michael Cohen has already pleaded guilty to the violation of campaign finance law. He said that he carried out the effort in coordination with and at the direction of then-candidate Donald Trump in order to increase his chances of victory in the 2016 presidential election.
