Nicolle Wallace: Leaving Trump Alone With Putin Akin to ‘Leaving 6-Year Old Alone to Play With Matches’

On Thursday, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace said leaving President Donald Trump alone with Russian President Vladimir Putin akin to leaving a little kid alone with matches.

“What is going on, though?” Wallace said during a discussion of Trump’s very messy post-Putin meeting week punctuated by Trump’s invite to Putin to come to Washington.

She added: “I have a 6-year-old and I don’t leave him alone to play with matches or fireworks. They left this president alone with Vladimir Putin and it is akin to leaving a 6-year-old alone to play with matches and fireworks. They’re going to be cleaning this up for months.”

MSNBC political analyst Ashley Parker then added this whole thing is a reminder that Trump always gets what he wants.

“This is a good reminder that at the end of the day, this president on the whole gets what he wants,” she said. “This has been walkback week. There has been a cleanup or correction or a tweet or a statement — Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or even earlier today.”

She added that despite all these cleanup efforts, Trump still got to issue his invite to Putin.
