The New York Daily News reports:
Trump wants Diamond & Silk back on his favorite network ASAP. The president took to Twitter on Tuesday to push Fox News to rescind its dumping the controversial black conservative duo for spreading lies about coronavirus.
After Trump’s victory, they became prominent defenders of the president despite being shunned by mainstream black leaders. They scored a deal to push out their videos on the Fox Nation streaming service and were frequent guests on the news network.
Fox cut ties with Diamond & Silk after they claimed that the media is exaggerating the death toll of the coronavirus pandemic and said public health officials are wrong to tell people to stay in their homes.
But I love Diamond & Silk, and so do millions of people! https://t.co/RBX9bmFIwH

Grifters and conmen love each other, it’s not personal it’s business.

Of course you do…Diamond & Silk are boneheaded, stereotypical caricatures of how you and many of your followers prefer to see black people.
Just like YOU are a boneheaded caricature of how stupid people imagine a smart, rich man is.

These two maniacs were just being sarcastic when they questioned the body count of Covid deaths in NYC and accused people of spreading virus deliberately to make Trump look bad. https://t.co/KJNDstXCBN
