WATCH: Fox’s Wallace Discusses Trump’s Very Bad Week for Election Chances
There are a number of anchors on the Fox News Network that are all in on the President. Then there is longtime journalist Chris Wallace. Wallace has been known to call shots mostly down the middle and this often sees him at odds with the President.
On the occasions that Trump takes shots at his sometimes favorite network, Wallace is often on of the main targets. The President will most likely be angry with the newsman soon as the Fox host appeared on The View today to talk about Trump’s dwindling election chances.
The View’s Sunny Hostin asked Wallace, “Is this, in your view, the right tone for the president to be taking in this moment?”
The Fox pundit responded, “Well, I’m not going to talk about, in terms of right or wrong, I mean the president has his base and he has his beliefs, and he’s entitled to them.”
“I would say that the last week was a very bad week for the president in terms of politics, in terms of his potential reelection prospects. I mean when you’re getting called out by the Episcopal Bishop of Washington, and the archbishop of the Catholic Church of Washington, when you’re getting called out by everybody from Jim Mattis to former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mike Mullen, and even your own current Secretary of Defense Mark Esper breaks with you that’s not a good week.”
The Fox host ended his comments, “So you can argue as to whether he’s right or wrong, but in politically, I think it’s been a bad week.”
