Joe Scarborough argued Tuesday that firing chief White House strategist Steve Bannon could lead to President Trump salvaging his falling approval numbers.
MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle first noted that “on the 100th day of his presidency… the Congress is going to default on the nation’s debt or go forward as we’ve been going forward.”
“By the way anybody who thinks it gets easier, let me tell you know what’s going to happen here,” Scarborough added. “This is going to be a turning point.”
“Trump’s going to find out once again he won’t have votes from Republicans to do this. I’m not knocking Republicans. I refused to raise the debt limit to $4 trillion in ’94 or ’96, so I’m not knocking him.”
“He’s going to have to deal with Democrats,” he continued. “And if he wants to get his 36 to 56, he’ll have to fire Steve Bannon or anybody else who calls themselves a Leninist who wants to destroy the American Republic.”
Scarborough said Trump must “start working with Republicans and Democrats and doing what 70 percent of Americans told NBC News a week ago.”
“They want their leaders to work with each other, compromise and to make Washington work again.”
