In his interview on "Fox & Friends" on Election Day, Trump complained that the network has “changed a lot,” Axios notes. 

"Somebody said: What's the biggest difference between this and four years ago? And I say, Fox," he said.

Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch said during the company's third quarter earnings call on Nov. 3 that the network welcomes competition. 
"Now 18 years, off the top of my head, of different administrations and different political cycles, we’ve maintained our number one position through all of that," Murdoch said. "We fully expect to be number one and maintain share through that."

"We love competition. We have always thrived with competition. And we have strong competition now," he added.
