Joe Scarborough said President Donald Trump is a "far graver" threat to the "idea of America" than the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.
Scarborough is host of MSNBC’s "Morning Joe." He made his remarks on Tuesday – the 17th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
They mirror similar remarks he made in a column in Tuesday’s Washington Post.
"You have just this week Brett Kavanaugh, who wants to be on the Supreme Court, refusing to answer whether people should be banned from coming to the United States because of their race," he said.
"And his reading of the Constitution. The accumulation of that – [Trump's] re-tweeting of neo-Nazi videos, Charlottesville… I can go on and on, what he said about the majority black countries. That is tearing more at the fabric of America than attacks on the twin towers did," Scarborough said. "We became stronger because of that. But this seems to me a far graver threat to the idea of America."
And in a column in Tuesday’s Post, Scarborough wrote: "The question for voters this fall is whether their country will move beyond this troubled chapter in history or whether they will continue supporting a politician who has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could."
