Fox News on Sunday released a poll that showed Trump trailing five Democratic presidential contenders in hypothetical 2020 match-ups.

A Quinnipiac University survey released last week also showed Trump trailing a number of Democratic contenders, including Biden by 13 points. 

Trump has repeatedly downplayed recent polling of his 2020 election prospects in the last week. The president tweeted earlier Monday that "only fake polls" showed him behind 2020 Democrats, referring to them as a "Motley Crew."

"We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that," he said. "Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

The new comments from Trump came just a day after news surfaced that his campaign had cut ties with some of its pollsters following a leak of internal surveys that showed Trump trailing Biden in multiple key states. 
 
Trump is known to have a cordial relationship with many Fox News personalities and has appeared on the network more than any other. But he has increasingly criticized it over its campaign coverage, particularly when it chooses to cover 2020 Democrats. 
 
 
"Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems," he said, adding, "They forgot the people who got them there."
