"Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough argued Tuesday morning that Donald Trump's presidency is all about the benjamins, not the majority of Americans.

While discussing Trump's latest controversial decision -- the end of DACA, one of President Barack Obama's executive orders that shields children of illegal immigrants from deportation -- the MSNBC personality pointed out it's another move that caters to a minority of voters and said there's only one conclusion to draw: Trump's endgame is not to make America great again, but to "make billions" from a TV network after he leaves the White House.

"It seems like everything he does, it plays to the hard 33 percent and the only rational answer to this is, this is a man who wants to get out of the White House and start a media company that just feeds on that 33 percent," Scarborough said. "Because there is not a rational answer to why he continues to do things that offends two out of three voters, And after a while, you've just got to say, it's not a mistake."

"He knows what he’s doing. He’ll take his 33 percent, start a TV network, make billions," he added.

The speculation about "Trump TV" emerged during the election, since many media pundits were predicting Trump would lose the election to Hillary Clinton. While they were way off with that prediction, Trump TV did come into fruition this summer on a very small scale.

Trump's Facebook page has hosted several low-budget broadcasts positioned as "REAL news" about his accomplishments. His daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, and former pro-Trump CNN commentator Kayleigh McEnany have hosted installments.
