on

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.”

Democratic prosecutors on Friday wrapped up three days of arguments for seeking Donald Trump's removal from office, as the US president's lawyers prepared to take their turn presenting his defense in the Senate's historic impeachment trial.

For a final eight-hour stretch, the 100 senators listened as Democrats argued that Trump abused the power of the presidency in pressuring Ukraine to launch investigations that would help him politically and then sought to block efforts by Congress to investigate.

Democrats said they had met the burden of proof as they warned Republicans that Trump would remain a grave danger to the nation if left in office.
