Trump reportedly watches "Fox & Friends" on a daily basis and regularly lauds the show and its hosts on Twitter.

The president called into the program for a sweeping telephone interview in late April, during which he distanced himself from his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen who has faced scrutiny from federal investigators. 

The former reality TV star was also a regular on the program for years during a segment called "Monday Mornings With Trump" before he announced his White House candidacy in 2015.

Trump has not appeared on rival MSNBC in any capacity in more than two years. His last appearance on CNN was August 2016. 

The president's last broadcast interview on a major national news network occurred in May 2017 on NBC with "Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt.
