‘Morning Joe’: Trump’s ‘Melting Down’ Over His Slipping Poll Numbers
BRZEZINSKI: “But he seems to be melting down at his slipping poll numbers. There is new reporting from multiple news outlets that President Trump lashed out at his campaign manager after he was given polls that showed that he was trailing Joe Biden very badly in several key states. Trump was briefed in a series of phone calls last week by his political advisers, including his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel, and son-in-law Jared Kushner. The aides showed the President his re-election campaign’s latest internal polls, which showed him trailing Joe Biden in several key states. Multiple sources familiar with the briefing confirmed to NBC News. One source described Trump as being in a 'horrific mood' as Parscale walked him through the polling. On Friday, two days after being shown the polls, Trump berated his campaign manager, insisting the data was wrong, and blamed Parscale for the fact that he was down in the polls. The tense exchange was first reported by CNN and 'The Washington Post.' The 'Associated Press' reports that Trump repeatedly told campaign officials during the heated calls, 'I’m not blanking losing to Joe Biden.'"
