Fox News representatives did not return a request for comment on the president's tweets.

"Anyone who knows @OANN, knows we've reported REAL news since DAY ONE. Our young people work very hard to do that, so to be mentioned by the President means a lot more to them than to the established media elites," added the network's CEO, Robert Herring, in a tweet.
