Trump slams Fox News, says it’s an ‘obstacle’ to reelection

President Trump appears to be done with Fox News for good after the disastrous first presidential debate moderated by longtime Fox Host Chris Wallace.

Though Trump has spoken positively of the network — especially of certain anchors and hosts such as Tucker Carlson — he’s ramped up his rhetoric recently, indicating that he’s ending any pretense of good relations with the network as a whole. 

Trump slammed Fox News during a “radio rally” event he hosted on the Rush Limbaugh show on Friday, telling listeners that Fox News is different than it was during the 2016 election cycle and that it is “no longer great.”

Though Fox News played an important role in helping Trump get elected in 2016, the network is rumored to have taken a sharp left turn, mostly prompted by those in executive roles that no longer want to be associated with the right and perpetuated by hosts such as Wallace.

“You have such an incredible audience. So I can tell them about Fox being a big obstacle,” said Trump told Limbaugh. “It’s a problem. Fox is a problem.”

At this point, Trump said he’ll still deal with the network, but he’s not very excited about the prospect. I deal with ’em. I deal with ’em,” he explained. “But they’ve gone a very different path. It’s a much different group. They have guys on there that are so bad.”

Trump told conservative radio host Mark Levin during a different interview that “Fox is a whole different ballgame than it used to be. Fox was great. Fox was great. Fox is no longer great.”

Levin hosts a weekend show on Fox, and said he’d probably get a talking-to from Fox higher-ups after Trump’s lambasting of the network. “I say it on Fox. I don’t care,” Trump fired back. “What difference does it make at this point?”

Trump’s distaste for Fox as a network doesn’t extend to “Fox & Friends,” the hosts of which Trump said he still admires, along with flagship hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Tucker Carlson.

  1. Fox News should have never allowed Chris Wallace to moderate the debate. He was not fair and balanced. He favored Joe Biden. He might as well held a sign during the debate saying I am voting for Joe. Actions have consequences. Fox news should fire him. Then to see him as a commentator after the Vice Presidential debated turned me off. The President granted an interview to Chris and was gracious to him. Shame on him. Shame on Fox News.

    1. Actually the GOP HIGH UPS should have NEVER ACCEPTED that EFFETE LIBERAL as Moderator….Even NEWT blamed WALLACE for the BIASED JOB he did….and then allowing a BIDEN SUPPORTE from NPR ,,,, Who is the MORON ???? as for Fox they are Sliding into FUX NEWS CORP

    2. FOX NEWS has changed since the murdoch brothers did whatever they did AND then hired PAUL RYAN, A RINO THAT HATES OUR PRESIDENT. i only watch F and F, sean, tucker and maria bartaromo, sometimes laura. the rest are ‘haters’ and chris wallace was a huge mistake in moderating the debate. who would interrupt after the way our President has been treated for four years, 24/7, and then witnesses ‘hiden biden’ being protected like a lobster without a shell. ugh. i had to turn it off, and i turned of the VP debate as well, moderated by another liberal that is WRITING A BIOGRAPHY ON PELOSI. helllllooooooooo. bias, maybe. and KAmela with her snotty grin and condescending comments to our VICE PRESIDENT PENCE ~ i’m glad she once again failed. it’s all a pathetic display of corruption and spite. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  2. The whole debate is rigged in Biden’s favor! This is not debating it the left playing the deception game! TheyLie,Lie,LIE! They are full of set up questions and throw beachball questions at Biden-Harris! You have to debate the moderator and you’re opponent! America sees it and it’s very obvious. What a bunch of slime balls. WAKE UP AMERICANS or lose your country. Don’t fall victim to the deceit and lies from these gutter rats!

  3. If the President refused to answer the question about packing the court, They would call him every name in the book. He is afraid He is a sinister and so on and it would be on every major paper saying President refused to answer and what is he hiding?

  4. I agree Fox News has to many Dems on that knock President Trump. I’m starting to turn
    Off some of your shows. When you had Mayor Pete on that was it. I don’t need to hear what he has to say about the President, I can go to other stations
    Get back behind President Trump more.

  5. Chris Wallace needs to be fired!! Some of Fox News has gone Rouge! I used to keep my TV on Fox News, not anymore! Get yourself together or I will not watch anymore!🤬

  6. Soros now has FOX in his pocket….they are now competing with CNN for last place.!!!! remember where you heard it !!! ( you probably won’t see this because THEY won’t allow it ).

  7. The biggest problem at Fox News is PAUL RYAN, WHO I HAVE HEARD IS A SATANIC PEDOPHILE, AND I TOTALLY BELIEVE PAUL RYAN IS A SATANIC PEDOPHILE. HE IS THE BIGGEST REASON FOX NEWS HAS GONE LEFTIE LEFT LEFT. I see Sandra Smith going pretty left (I don’t watch her show, especially after her co-anchor was fired–Sandra needs to get out too)–I don’t watch her show, except for going through the channels or see her on a news clip–Sandra Stinks, Stinks, Stinks.

    I even see Steve on Fox and Friends having to say what he was told to say–chases people away from Fox News!!!

    Harris Faulkner might as well pack her bags and get off before something really bad happens–I think some of these people are trying to keep their jobs with their big paychecks, but it is going to end! This is why you hear them saying things Leftie, when not too long ago, that would not have happened!!! Harris can take Melissa Francis with her when she goes!!!

    YES, CHRIS WALLACE NEEDS TO GO. CHRIS WALLACE SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED A LONG TIME AGO. I CAN’T STAND CHRIS WALLACE (ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS I HAVE GONE TO NEWSMAX).

    NEIL CAVUTO NEEDS TO GO ASAP–FAR TOO LEFTIE LEFT LEFT!!!

    JUAN WILLIAMS SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED A LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG TIME AGO!!! JUAN RUINS “THE FIVE” AND THEY YELL AT HIM AND TALK TO HIM, BUT HE DOES NOT SEEM TO COMPREHEND!!!

    CHRIS WALLACE, NEIL CAVUTO AND JUAN WILLIAMS GET BONUSES AND/OR EXTRA MONEY FROM THE LEFT (OR THE CABAL OR THE NWO, ETC.) TO BE LEFTIES FROM THE CABAL. WE DON’T LIKE THAT AND WE, THE VIEWERS DON’T LIKE THEM!!! WE WANT THEM OFF THE AIR TOTALLY.

    I, PERSONALLY, WOULD LIKE TO SEE THIS MARIE PERSON THAT WORKED FOR OBAMA AND JESSICA WHO IS SO LEFT SHE CAN’T THINK STRAIGHT AND ACTS AS IF SHE HAD A “LOW IQ” WHICH SHE MIGHT. MARIE IS ALWAY “LEFTIE WRON” AND A MEAN LITTLE JERK!!! GET MARIE AND JESSICA OFF THE AIR TOTALLY AND FOREVER!!!

    I ALWAYS HATED THE WAY HEATHER CHILDERS WAS TREATED BY FOX NEWS (SUZANNE SCOTT). SUZANNE SCOTT SHOULD BE KICKED OUT–SHE IS A GREAT BIG PUPPET–WANTS TO KEEP HER BIG PAYCHECK AT ANY COST!!! HEATHER CHILDRERS AND ROB SCHMITT ARE WAY BETTER OFF AT NEWSMAX.

    MANY PEOPLE ARE LEAVING FOX NEWS–THE POWERS THAT BE AT FOX NEWS OBVIOUSLY THINK JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO WIN AND THEY THINK FOX NEWS IS GOING TO BE A “JOE BIDEN” CHANNEL!!! NOTA GOINA HAPPEN DING DINGS AT FOX NEWS!!!

    FOX NEWS NEEDS TO GET RID OF PAUL RYAN ASAP, ALONG WITH SUZANNE SCOTT, AND ANYBODY ELSE THAT BELIEVES AND DOES THE SAME AS PAUL RYAN!!! BUT THEN AGAIN, FOX NEWS MIGHT NOT BE AROUND MUCH LONGER ANYWAY!!!

    MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO NEWSMAX NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GET RID OF PAUL RYAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. FOX you better wise up Chris Wallace hates Trump and his voters They are the people who made Fox news. I no longer look for news on Fox Still enjoy most of the commentators Because they not like other so called news networks where any Nanny Baby with and opinion is a news person or so called expert . Wallace is not a news person and you need to treat him as a liberal hack that he is. Watch News Max & O.A.N.

  9. Chris Wallace was rude to President Trump when he interviewed President Trump. I have studied body language and Chris Wallace was so pleased with himself for all of the setups and smirks he delivered. I took a dislike to him then and he was rude to Trump with a lack of respect for our President durning the debate. It was obvious Joe was his choice. If I owned Fox News I would fire Chris Wallace.
    And just to clean up the news cast I would also fire Juan Williams. He is the most negative news person I have ever seen on Fox.
    Another thing, Fox should put an end to the cursing and name calling. It is like they are trying to become like the other news station.
    Clean up your act Fox News!

  10. I stopped watching The Five, FoxNews Sunday, Cavuto because I refuse to see or hear Juan, Wallace and Cavuto, respectively. Fox if more leftists are added to your network I will need to go to OAN or Newsmax. I become sick of the probability of a Biden reign. FIRE these Fox people.

  11. chris wallace should of never been chosen to moderate Presidents Trumps debate. Hes a demorat and a very biased person. He did protect biden with answers and tried to destroy Trump but Trump destroyed wallace. One more dirty trick like this from fox and it will be newsmax from now on.

  12. According to reports, co-anchor M.Francis, her husband works for one of George Soros many companies. No wonder she cut in when Knewt Gingrich was talking to Faulkner about Soros backed BLM
    and Antifa. Francis but in and said that has not been proven.Is she blind?
    That’s all we need to know about Fox and their political stance.
    I watched Fox for many hours in a day, not anymore. My family says to me, No More Fox, Thank God, we can finally watch normal TV.

  13. Jesse, greg, dana, dagen, tucker, sean, laura pete, sgt joey, tyrus, lawrence jones should be kept, clean house with the libs. Mike Hines

  14. I agree with all of these comments. Chris Wallace needs to be fired. He is so obviously against President Trump. I don’t even watch Fox anymore. I got tired of hearing many of the commentators putting the President down and treating Biden with kid gloves.

    1. I also think that Chris Wallace should be fired. He did a very bad job. He did every thing. he could to help Biden. Chris was very disrespectful to President Trump. I also do not watch Fox in early day shows any more.I only watch the night shows. I like Levine and Hilton, Waters and the Judge again night shows. It’s so sad that people like Wallace. and Juan Williams etc. can ruin once good shows. Who ever is running Fox should be. fired also, before he turns it into CNN.

  15. I really thaught fox news was fair and balanced,encouraged friends to watch it. My eyes were opened when neut Greendrige was on OUT NUMBERED he brought up George Soras noone said anything, it was obvious Harris couldnt speak about him,I was not the only one that noticed,Then threes Chris Wallace, he was appauling at the debate ,quit watching the five ,because of Jaun,like Jessie and Dana, Jaun is repulsive. If it wasnt for TUCKER,THE JUDGE,JESSIE WATERS I would not watch it at all. They tell it like it is. So sad I did love Fox I knew that you would get the truth. They have ruin a good network, Makes me very sad. Whoever is making these changes should be fired,

  16. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought
    this post was great. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t
    already 😉 Cheers!

  17. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your site.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant
    for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create
    your theme? Great work!
