On Monday morning, Joe Scarborough from MSNBC predicted that President Trump “isn’t going anywhere until Bob Mueller says he’s going somewhere” in response to the media speculating that President Trump will resign.
On “Morning Joe,” Scarborough said, “This weekend there seems to be a turn where a lot of people are negative, have started to talk about impeachment and have begun to talk about that maybe he’s going to resign now.”
Scarborough went on to ask NBC political analyst, Mark Halperin, “He’s not going anywhere, is he? Where is this coming from?”
Halperin replied, “Because people look at White Houses that play offense and defense.”
Halperin elaborated by saying, “What is on the list of playing defense? Afghanistan, North Korea, the Mueller investigation, the debt ceiling.”
Scarborough interjected, “But that doesn’t mean he’s resigning or being impeached.”
In response, Halperin explained, “Of course not, but because he’s doing nothing on offense and offense would be tax reform, would be front and center because there’s no sign they’re doing anything on offense it’s easy for the large percentage of the country, tens of millions of Americans who would like him to go.”
Halperin went on to talk about the massive number of Americans who want Trump out of office immediately.
Scarborough concluded, “He’s not going anywhere until Bob Mueller says he’s going somewhere.”
A poll was released on Sunday that shows Trump’s approval rating is very low in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin…
- Michigan- 36 percent of residents approve Trump’s performance, 55 percent disapprove.
- Pennsylvania- 33 percent of residents approve Trump’s performance, 52 percent disapprove.
- Wisconsin- 33 percent of residents approve Trump’s performance, 56 percent disapprove.
Tides have quickly turned, considering Trump was the first Republican presidential candidate in three decades to win those states.
Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion, stated, “For residents of these three critical electoral states, the reaction to the first round of the Trump presidency is decidedly negative. Residents are clearly dissatisfied in how candidate Trump transitioned into President Trump.”
What are your thoughts on this? Would President Trump actually resign? Also, what does Trump’s low approval rating mean for the future? Please feel free to leave a comment below!
