Meet the Press: Daily host Chuck Todd pulled no punches in his stunning opening monologue Thursday, warning that President Donald Trump’s open call for foreign governments to investigate potential 2020 rival Joe Biden represented “a national nightmare” that, if left completely unchecked by Republicans, could inflict “lasting damage” to our democracy.
Todd was reacting to the jaw-dropping moment on Thursday when Trump, while standing on the White House South Lawn, solicited both Ukraine and China in investigating Biden for corruption.
“Let’s be frank, a national nightmare is upon us, The basic rules of our democracy are under attack from the president,” Todd warned. “We begin tonight with a serious admission by the president that all but assures his impeachment in the House of Representatives. It’s a moment of truth for Republicans and they’ve been largely silent on what we have seen from the president. Today, he publicly called on two foreign governments to interfere in the election by investigating his chief 2020 political rival.”
