Morning Joe on Prospects of Trump-NoKo Nuclear Deal: ‘He Can’t Even Make a Deal With a Porn Star’

Morning Joe was all over news that President Donald Trump agreed to meet in the coming weeks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, speculating that the announcement was intended to distract from the Stormy Daniels news cycle, but also questioning the president’s most bragged-about attribute: his negotiating skills.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said that while he thinks Trump will follow through and meet with Kim, that doesn’t mean much, pointing to previous deals — from immigration to gun control — the president has touted but not closed on.

“But it’s all bluster, there’s no deal, because he doesn’t know how to make a deal,” he said. “All talk, all bluster, no deal. Because he is horrible at making deals, that’s how he ended up $9 billion in debt.”

“He can’t even make a deal with a porn star!” co-host Mika Brzezinski exclaimed. “He doesn’t even sign the papers of the deal that he struck — think about that.”

“That’s exactly right,” Scarborough said. “He can’t even draft, and his lawyer can’t even draft, a competent deal to keep a porn star quiet.”

For those not following: Stormy Daniels, a porn star Trump allegedly had an affair with when he was married to third wife Melania, is suing the president over an nondisclosure agreement she argues is invalid because he never signed it.
