Joe Scarborough: Trump ‘Does Not Look Like a Man Who Wants to Win’
MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough wondered on Wednesday if President Donald Trump really wants to be reelected. The Morning Joe host made the remarks during a conversation about a new poll, showing once again that former Vice President Joe Biden is ahead nationally.
“You can ignore a poll here, a poll there,” said Axios’ Jim VandeHei. “The trend is devastating for Donald Trump, and he knows it. Listen, 14 points. When you talk about, hey, there might be a hidden vote, there’s not a 15-point hidden vote out there. And there’s a lot of indicators.”
“It’s not just the national poll. Another poll yesterday in Texas basically tied. The Wisconsin polls, the Minnesota polls, Pennsylvania polls, Michigan polls, Arizona polls, states that matter polls, all bad for him.”
VandeHei went on to talk about Trump’s sparsely attended rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma and ‘turmoil inside the campaign’. He pointed again to the polling trend showing Trump consistently losing to Biden.
“But the problem is, Mika, that every day — and we say this every day, and I actually looked at the news yesterday and just came to the conclusion, this does not look like a man who wants to win, who wants to be re-elected,” Scarborough said.
“You know, remember when he asked China to help him get elected? And Marco Rubio came out and said, oh, he’s just joshing. Here, he’s asking the Communist Chinese, the people’s republic of China, to rig the election for him, to get involved. And Marco Rubio said, oh, he’s just joshing. Isn’t that a funny joke? He’s just joking.”
