MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough explained why President Trump does not deserve the benefit of the doubt for his undisclosed meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The meeting, which took place at the G-20 summit at the beginning of July was revealed by the press and quickly confirmed by the White House Tuesday, which shrugged off the whole affair as ordinary and even a good diplomatic effort on behalf of the president towards a geo-political foe. 

Scarborough does not see it that way, "Because of what Donald Trump has done in the past, reporters, foreign policy analysts, and our allies can safely assume the worst," Scarborough argued. "They can safely assume the worst of Donald Trump. They can safely assume the worst of Vladimir Putin."
