Fox News representatives did not return a request for comment on the president's tweets. His remarks come as right-wing cable news outlet One America News Network has pushed in recent weeks for the president's public support, tweeting in March that it called "bullshit" after Trump failed to mention the network by name at a campaign rally.

"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.
