Fox News censors Trump as he talks about potential rivals aside from the current president

On Sunday, while ranting about his potential opponents—former First Lady Michelle Obama and California Governor Gavin Newsom—Fox News blocked former President Donald Trump.

Fox News host Maria Bartiromo mentioned Trump's belief that he might not run against President Joe Biden in an interview that aired on Sunday as Raw Story reported.

"Well, Gavin Newsom's right out of central casting," Bartiromo said. "How are you going to do up against Gavin Newsom?"

"Because he's, he's so much b***s***," Trump said as Fox News censored the former president.

"His state is doing horribly. You look at the homeless problem. You look at the people that are leaving. You have companies that are leaving. They're all leaving for other locations. I think Gavin's easy because California is a disaster."

Bartiromo also asked about the possibility of Michelle Obama running.

"How are you going to do against Michelle Obama?" the Fox News host wondered.

"You have to see," Trump insisted. "Look, I've seen polls where she doesn't do well. She may do well, but I've seen polls where I beat her easily."

"I beat her by a lot," he added. "I had four great years."

The departure of Rupert Murdoch as chairman of Fox Corp and News Corp was reported in September 2023. According to a former adviser to Trump and Republican strategists, this could be a chance for former President Donald Trump and Fox News to mend their relationship as the 2024 election campaign gets underway.

Following the 2020 election and Fox News' coverage of the election and the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol Hill riot, that resulted in five deaths and over 140 injuries , the once mutually beneficial relationship between Trump and Fox News ended.

Legal experts noted that the $787.5 million settlement that Fox reached with Dominion Voting Systems in April was the largest ever for an American media corporation. The action was filed over Fox's amplification of Trump's fraudulent claims of vote-rigging in the 2020 election.

The news broke on last September that Lachlan Murdoch, son of Rupert, will take over as sole chairman of News Corp (NWSA.O) and chair and CEO of Fox (FOXA.O). This has prompted speculation regarding potential changes to Fox's political coverage in the run-up to the 2024 presidential election and Republican primaries.

Fox News maintains its position as the preeminent cable news network in the United States and has significant influence over American politics. Republicans have leaned toward it because of its conservative viewership, but its detractors claim it's biased and has poisoned American politics.
