In the opening monologue to her show "Deadline: White House" on Wednesday, host Nicolle Wallace slammed President Donald Trump's blundering leadership as he fails to face up to crises facing the world and the nation.


"With warning signs flashing red that the economy could be headed for turmoil, the Dow closing over 800 points down today, as Donald Trump's political weakness — foreign policy cluelessness, and abdication of American leadership on the world stage — is on full and stark display," she said. "The world's eyes on Hong Kong. Pro-democracy protesters spilled into the streets today on the fourth day of escalating tensions there. It's the kind of standoff where America used to take a clear stand on the side of pro-democracy forces. Today, it's unclear where the American president comes down."

Meanwhile, she noted, Trump's public events are filled with his thoughts about his personal interests, rather than global affairs.

"The world is on fire, and Trump is musing publicly about his poll numbers in battleground states, his love of umbrellas and trucks, and President Obama's book deal," she said.
