‘He just looks desperate’: Morning Joe panel destroys Trump’s attempts to undermine the election

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and his panelists tried to make sense of President Donald Trump's apparent attempts to undermine confidence in this year's election results.

The president attacked Pennsylvania's Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf during an Allentown rally, saying his administration was watching the state's vote count "very closely," and the "Morning Joe" host wondered what he was talking about.

"Far from panicking at the prospect of a Biden win, Wall Street CEOs, traders and investment managers now mostly say they would be fine with a change in the White House that reduces the Trump noise, lowers the threat of further trade wars and ensures a continuation of the government spending they’ve seen in recent years."
