Fox News took aim at other cable news networks on Wednesday night for not airing President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump mocks wind power: 'When the wind doesn't blow, just turn off the television' Pentagon investigator probing whether acting chief boosted former employer Boeing Trump blasts McCain, bemoans not getting 'thank you' for funeral MORE’s campaign rally in Duluth, Minnesota.

“Trump rally live & only on Fox News, other networks ignore presidential rally” the network’s chyron read during its broadcast of Trump’s rally.

Fox Business also aired the rally.

Both CNN and MSNBC carried on with regular programming.

Trump is well-known for his avid consumption of Fox News, often tweeting about the network’s programming. He made a surprise appearance on “Fox & Friends” Friday from the White House lawn.

Trump repeated his attacks on the press during the campaign rally, calling the media “fake news” and “very dishonest.” The crowd then broke into chants of “CNN sucks.”


The president was at the rally to support Republican candidate Pete Stauber, who shared the stage with the president for a short time. 

The rally was held just hours after Trump gave in to bipartisan pressure and signed an executive order blocking the separation of immigrant families detained at the U.S.–Mexico border — a policy his administration implemented earlier this year.
