President Donald Trump has already suffered multiple defeats and humiliations over the last few days, but Friday has taken the president's disastrous week to a whole new level.
CNN polling analyst Harry Enten on Friday took to Twitter to assess the massive damage that Trump has suffered just within the last several hours, and he declared it a "total disaster" for the president.
"Trump's approval rating is falling, the economy may see no expansion this quarter (per the Trump administration), and Russian troubles are ramping up (not disappearing)," he wrote. "Total disaster. Oh and now airports are get screwed up. When it rains, it pours."

The Friday news cycle began with longtime Trump ally Roger Stone getting arrested and indicted for lying to investigators multiple times about his efforts to contact WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential campaign regarding stolen emails from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
Shortly after that bombshell dropped, the Federal Aviation Administration announced that it was halting all inbound flights to New York's LaGuardia International Airport thanks to staffing shortages caused by President Donald Trump's government shutdown.
These two events occurred less than a day after the president's plan to reopen the government by funding his border wall went down in defeat in the Senate -- and after an unsuccessful Democratic measure to reopen the government without wall funding actually got more votes in the Senate than the Trump plan.
