MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump was fundamentally “ill-suited” for his job, and that would prevent him from ever reaching a deal to fund his border wall.
The “Morning Joe” host said the president was obsessed with winning every negotiation, which ensured he would lose every fight with the U.S. Congress.
“Why Donald Trump is so ill-suited for this job, if you talked to any president that was worth their weight in salt, at least, if you talk to any lawyer who’s a mediator,” Scarborough said, “they will tell you the best deals are the deals where everybody walks away from the table unhappy, which means that everybody negotiated, everybody gave up something that they didn’t want to give up and everybody moved the country ahead a little bit.”
Scarborough said the president insists on winning every deal.
“For Donald Trump it’s always a zero sum game,” Scarborough said. “He always has to win and everybody else always has to lose. You come to Washington with that mindset, I can tell you, you’re going to be the biggest loser.”
‘Trump should know how to be in public with a woman who publicly humiliated him’: Trevor Noah jokes
"The Daily Show's" Trevor Noah couldn't help but notice President Donald Trump's confusion during the Q&A of his daily coronavirus press briefing. Trump was asked about Vice President Joe Biden's pick as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate. In his attacks on Harris, Trump seemed to be spending more time defending Biden than he did attacking him.
Trump claimed the reason he was surprised Biden picked Harris is that she was "very very nasty to Joe Biden," he said she was "probably nastier even than Pocahontas," his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). "She was very disrespectful to Joe Biden."
Mike Pence tries to brag about creating a record number of jobs — but it was after losing all of those jobs in the first place
Vice President Mike Pence appeared on Fox News Wednesday to brag about the Trump administration creating more jobs in the United States than any other president in history, including former President Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The problem, obviously, is that they lost all of those jobs in the first place.
Due to the coronavirus crisis and the mismanagement that surrounded it, the United States reached 14.7 percent unemployment, with jobless claims surpassing 40 million Americans. It's a record worst unemployment rate since the Great Depression and set an all-time record for the most Americans out of work in history. During the Great Depression, 23 million Americans were out of work.
Side-by-side video exposes Trump as he reads the exact same script at multiple press briefings
If President Donald Trump sounds like he's mindlessly rattling off random facts and figures on a monotone voice while reading another script that sounds like the same script before, there's a reason for that. The scripts have been almost identical on multiple occasions.
The Recount showed a mash-up of several different videos of Trump reading the exact same words about the COVID-19 pandemic and the United States "conducting more tests than any other country in the world." He also cites the exact same phrase for talking about the elderly dying of the coronavirus and how they can fast-track the vaccine for 100 million of the 330 million Americans in the United States.
