Laura Ingraham ‘not saying’ if she’d support Trump in 2024
Fox News host Laura Ingraham is not committing to supporting former President Trump if he runs for reelection in 2024.
“Both publicly and privately I said what I believe: that the Jan. 6 breach at the Capitol was a terrible thing. Crimes were committed,” Ingraham said on her show last month. “Some people were unfairly hounded and persecuted, but it was not an insurrection. To say anything different is beyond dishonest and it ignores the facts of that day.”
Trump, who during his final months in office soured on Fox and its leadership, has since found a friendlier media environment on smaller conservative cable channels like One America News and Newsmax, which have broadcast his unfounded claims of voter fraud and and given credence to his assertion that the election was “rigged.”
At a rally in Arizona over the weekend, which Fox did not carry live, Trump again repeated false claims about the election’s result.
“A lot of conservatives were feeling a year ago, you know, completely dejected,” Ingraham told the magazine of Trump’s loss in 2020. “I kept saying, ‘I’ve been around for 30 years, doing this in one form or another. There’s always another election, so don’t get too dragged down by the results of one.”
