CNBC editor at large John Harwood on Monday agreed with the New York Times that “politics [is] driving the economy to the greatest extent in our lifetime”, and said that history would ultimately place the blame on President Donald Trump’s criminality, which he said had perhaps surpassed that of Richard Nixon.
“That’s because we haven’t had a president like Donald Trump in our lifetime,” Harwood said, slamming the president’s repeated disrespect for the office.
“The amount of legal jeopardy that he faces is worse than any president since Richard Nixon,” Harwood added, noting how many people close to Trump have been indicted or pled guilty to felonies. “We may look back later and say that his scale of jeopardy exceeded that of Richard Nixon.”
“All these things suggest a leadership crisis within the United States and, therefore, the western world that we have not seen,” he concluded.

Here is how Republicans are reacting when confronted with the new rape allegation against Trump

Journalist E. Jean Carroll detailed her account of Trump raping her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room more than two decades ago in an article, in her new book, and in TV interviews. New York Magazine reported that it contacted two of her friends who confirmed that she told them about the assault shortly after it happened.
‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant
President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.
“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.
The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:
Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw
