MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace and ex-Republican strategist Steve Schmidt slammed President Donald Trump over his 'ill-prepared' meeting with Russia and compared his ignorance to Sarah Palin.

Schmidt and Wallace worked for John McCain's 2008 campaign against Barack Obama.

"You and I worked for someone who could see Russia from her house so we're in a position to see whether Donald Trump is operating from ignorance is bliss or whether he seriously has a thing for these dictators," Wallace said.

"Let me say former Republican to begin," Schmidt said. "At the end of the day, Donald Trump made the world profoundly more dangerous with his reality show diplomacy in Singapore. Of course, Kim Jong-un is not honoring the agreement and they're working on an intercontinental ballistic missile, which one day a miniaturized warhead will sit on top of that could reach the continental united states."

He continued: "The intelligence agencies are under constant attack. So is roughly 40 percent of the country, however it doesn't matter what the intelligence agency says. What matters is what Trump says. Thankfully, it is a minority of the country."

"It doesn't change that the country is more in danger because we had an unprepared ignorant president go over there with the same level of rigor that he would plan an 'Apprentice' episode with meatloaf and Little John," he said.
