Scarborough: Trump Needs to Stop Fighting Everybody or See Approval Rating Collapse

Scarborough: Trump Needs to Stop Fighting Everybody or See Approval Rating Collapse

President-elect Donald Trump's approval ratings will continue to fall if he doesn't stop trying to fight multiple battles at once, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said Monday.

 

 

"This weekend alone, he's in fights with the preeminent civil rights leader in America," Scarborough said, referencing Rep. John Lewis, R-Ga. "With the entire intelligence community, perhaps the most important community to have on your side as president and the most dangerous to cross politically.

"The single most important military alliance of our time according to his own secretary of defense, NATO. The single most important leader in all of Europe, Angela Merkel," he added.

"We can fight one battle at a time, don't come at me and tell me that you want to take on this or that. One battle at a time, alright? And we clear the decks of that," the "Morning Joe" host said Monday morning.

"This does not last long, this does not continue. There is a breaking point. He's not even sworn in yet."

A Gallup poll released Monday shows less than half the country approves of Trump's actions as president-elect, far below his predecessors Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

"His numbers will collapse into the 20's if this continues," Scarborough said, citing co-host Mika Brzezinski and his correct prediction that Trump could win the GOP nomination.

"I'm telling you this will not last . . . This will not last, this will not continue. Somebody around him better tell him to focus," he added.
