Trump complains Fox News is ‘doing nothing to help’ him get reelected

President Trump on Thursday complained that Fox News was not doing anything to help him and other Republicans get reelected in November.

“Sure, there are some truly GREAT people on Fox, but you also have some real ‘garbage’ littered all over the network,” Trump tweeted.

He singled out contributors Chris Hahn, Richard Goodstein and Donna Brazile, all of whom have ties to the Democratic Party. He also targeted news host Neil Cavuto, who recently spoke critically of Trump’s decision to take hydroxychloroquine, and Juan Williams, who is also an opinion contributor for The Hill. 

“They repeat the worst of the Democrat speaking points, and lies,” Trump tweeted. “All of the good is totally nullified, and more. Net Result = BAD! CNN & MSDNC are all in for the Do Nothing Democrats! Fox WAS Great!”

The president’s tweet offers a window into the role he believes the news network should play in his political career, and it marks yet another escalation of his recent attacks on Fox News. Trump in late April tweeted that he wanted an “alternative” to the right-leaning news network.

Thursday’s tweet came shortly after Trump landed in Michigan to tour a Ford factory. Fox News typically plays on television screens aboard Air Force One during flights. 

Despite his criticisms, Trump still conducts interviews with the network more than any other. He recently called into “Fox & Friends” and sat down with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.

Trump regularly targets Fox hosts like Cavuto and Chris Wallace while praising and amplifying the work of opinion hosts like Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro, all of whom lavish the president with praise and excoriate his critics.
