Trump this year has repeatedly praised “Fox & Friends,” which recently announced that it would expand its weekday programming to five hours.

Gingrich in his interview with the newspaper praised Hannity’s show as a successful way to communicate with Americans.

“There are very few people who have a better understanding of the broad base, a better intuitive understanding of the kind of folks who elected Trump. He at least matches or surpasses Rush [Limbaugh] in that understanding,” Gingrich told the newspaper of Hannity.

The president recently sparked controversy by saying Fox News “is much more important” than its rival network, CNN.

"Fox News is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!" Trump said in a tweet last week.
