President Donald Trump slammed Fox News and host Chris Wallace on Sunday for “moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering” the Democrats.
The news outlet hosted a town hall with 2020 candidate Pete Buttigieg on Sunday night.
“Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him. Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems,” Trump tweeted. “They got dumped from the Democrats boring debates, and they just want in. They forgot the people who got them here.
“Chris Wallace said, “I actually think, whether you like his opinions or not, that Mayor Pete has a lot of substance…fascinating biography,”” he added. “Gee, he never speaks well of me – I like Mike Wallace better…and Alfred E. Newman will never be President!”
Veteran CBS newsmax Mike Wallace was Chris Wallace’s father. Alfred E. Newman, the mascot of Mad magazine, is Trump’s nickname for Buttigieg.
Trump throughout his presidency has consistently praised Fox News and criticized coverage by “fake news” media, including The New York Times, Washington Post and CNN, among others.
Trump took similar shots at Fox in April over its town hall with Sen. Bernie Sanders, another 2020 Democratic hopeful.
