The blistering criticism which he’s seen since he held his first “photo op” in front of St John’s Church near the White House has added up to not being a good week for Donald Trump’s re-election, according to Fox News journalist Chris Wallace.

Trump has essentially been earning poor marks in the eyes of most Americans in his response to May 25 murder of the African American man George Floyd in police custody, and the huge protest response which has been filling American streets ever since.

“Let me talk about it in terms of politics. And I would say that the last week was a very bad week for the president in terms of politics, in terms of his potential re-election prospects,” Wallace said in an appearance on the ABC talk show, The View. “I mean, when you’re getting called out by the episcopal bishop of Washington and the archbishop of the Catholic Church of Washington, when you’re getting called out by everybody from Jim Mattis, to former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Mike Mullen, and even your own current Secretary of Defense Mark Esper breaks with you, that’s not a good week.

“He had some good news on the economy but clearly — and you see there’s a new poll in The Washington Post today that indicates by almost two to one margin people don’t think the president has handled the last week properly,” Wallace added. “And his approval ratings and his standing in the polls have dropped. So you can argue as to whether he’s right or wrong, but politically I think it’s been a bad week.”
