Transcript for Trump faces strong disapproval for COVID-19 response
To the white house now where the president is facing his worst marks yet for handling the coronavirus emergency. Our new ABC news/ipsos poll shows 67% of Americans disapprove of how he's handling the crisis. Let's bring in Jon Karl. The same number disapprove of how he's handling race relations. Reporter: Staggeringly bad numbers for the president especially when you consider that these are the two biggest crises of his presidency and there you have two-thirds of the public disapproving of how he is handling them. If you look further into the poll it gets worse for the president. Of course, the majority, the vast majority of Democrats disapprove but look at independents. A whopping 73% of independents in this poll disapprove of how the president is handling the covid-19 crisis. He's even losing support among Republicans, 22% disapproving and on race relations, the disapproval extends all racial groups, 57% of whites disapproving. 92% of blacks disapproving and 83% of hispanics disapproving of his handling of race relations. Meantime, we had major rulings from the supreme court yesterday on the president's financial records and tax returns finding that he doesn't have absolute immunity from grand jury proceedings but that doesn't mean we'll see the tax returns any time soon. Reporter: On one hand it was a total defeat for the president, 9-0 on the question of whether or not the president has absolute immunity as the president argued, so he doesn't have that, but make no mistake, these tax returns are going to be secret for some time. The grand jury in New York can get them but, of course, grand jury proceedings are secret. I don't expect we'll see them for a long time. The president also laying out some strong hints he's prepared to pardon or commute the sentence of Roger stone. Reporter: He sure did on an interview with Sean hannity last night, clearly implying this was something he is considering. This would put him at odds, by the way, with his own attorney general, bill Barr, who said he thinks stone's sentence was appropriate, 40 months for lying to congress, misleading investigators, but the president seems to be inclined to at least commute that sentence. We will see. Jon Karl, thanks very much.
