Trump lashed out in a trio of tweets after a spokeswoman for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) appeared on "America's Newsroom." The president cited her interview; the employment of former DNC Chairwoman Donna BrazileDonna Lease BrazileTrump says Fox News 'doesn't deliver for US anymore' after poll shows rising impeachment support Politicon announces lineup including Comey, Hannity, Priebus Trump: 'Top shows' on Fox News, cable are 'Fair (or great)' to me MORE; Juan Williams, who is also a columnist for The Hill; and anchor Shepard Smith to claim the network is biased against him.

"Just watched @FoxNews heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor, @SandraSmithFox. Terrible considering that Fox couldn’t even land a debate, the Dems give them NOTHING!" Trump tweeted.

Trump blasted the network as "HOPELESS & CLUELESS" for hiring Brazile, Williams and Smith, each of whom have criticized the president at various times.

"They should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to Win — That’s what I do, Win. Too Bad!" Trump continued. "I don’t want to Win for myself, I only want to Win for the people. The New 
@FoxNews is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!"

 

 

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment, but some of its news personalities quickly pushed back against Trump.

"Fox News isn’t supposed to work for you," Fox senior political analyst Brit Hume replied on Twitter.

But Trump appears to have soured on the network in recent months, particularly as its polls have shown the president trailing Democratic candidates in prospective 2020 match-ups.

He has tweeted multiple times to bemoan Fox's polling and has targeted Williams and Brazile for criticism.

While some Democrats appear on the network for interviews, the DNC announced earlier this year it would not allow Fox News to host any debates, citing a New Yorker article that detailed extensive ties between the Trump administration and Fox.
