USA Today reports:
President Donald Trump fired back at the Democratic National Committee on Wednesday hours after Fox News was barred from hosting any of the Democratic debates ahead of the 2020 presidential election. Trump, in a tweet, suggested that in return he might halt other networks that have drawn his ire from hosting his debates. He did not elaborate on what networks he meant by “fake news networks” but has constantly targeted a variety of news companies, most notably CNN.
Fox News has issued a statement:
“We hope the DNC will reconsider its decision to bar Chris Wallace, Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum, all of whom embody the ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism, from moderating a Democratic presidential debate. They’re the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters.”
Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate. Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!
