A former campaign aide to President Trump said the president is “f–ked” now that his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, has been indicted. 

“Here’s what Manafort’s indictment tells me: Mueller is going to go over every financial dealing of Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization,” Sam Nunberg told Vanity Fair.

 
“Trump is at 33 percent in Gallup. You can’t go any lower. He’s fucked.”
 
Nunberg was fired by President Trump. Last year, Trump accused the former campaign aide of breaching a confidentiality agreement and sued for damages.
 
Trump hit an all-time low in the most recent Gallup tracking poll. Only 33 percent of respondents in the Gallup daily survey earlier this week said they approved of the job Trump is doing as president.
 
Sixty-two percent said they disapproved of Trump’s job performance.
 
The poll came before Monday’s news that Manafort was being charged with money laundering and tax fraud, among other crimes. It was the first indictment to come from Mueller’s investigation of Russia’s interference in the election.
