A number of shows broadcast on the Fox News network have been essential to Donald Trump’s political success. And he has paid those shows back in kind. Trump frequently gives special interview access to Fox & Friends and regularly uses his Twitter feed to promote Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro.
Thanks to some critical anchors, though, Trump has continued to sour on the fair and balanced network. The President went on a rant against Fox this morning claiming their polls suck and that One America News Network has better reporting.
Trump began by ranting about a recent Fox poll that showed impeachment support at 51%. “From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good Fox News Poll,” he wrote. “Whoever their Pollster is, they suck”
The President continued, “But Fox News is also much different than it used to be in the good old days. With people like Andrew Napolitano, who wanted to be a Supreme Court Justice & I turned him down (he’s been terrible ever since), Shep Smith, Donna Brazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from CNN), & others, Fox News doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!”

Trump did, however, offer a suggestion for conservative viewers looking for a news source. He wrote, “Thank you to OANN for your fair coverage and brilliant reporting. It is appreciated by many people trying so hard to find a new, consistent and powerful VOICE! See you tonight at the Big Rally in Minneapolis.”
