MSNBC’s Morning Joe says President Trump doesn’t appear to want to win reelection

Is Trump someone who wants to win re-election? “This does not look like a man who wants to win, who wants to be reelected,” Scarborough said, pointing to recent controversies such as Trump reportedly seeking China’s help and comments made about slowing down COVID-19 testing. “Time and time again, this guy, every day, acts like he doesn’t want to get reelected.
