Trump Wants ‘an Alternative’ to Fox News

The Hill reports, President Trump ripped into Fox News in a series of tweets on Sunday night, targeting several figures, claiming that he has “no respect” for the network’s leadership and it’s “being fed Democrat talking points.”

In three tweets, the president called for an “alternative” to the right-leaning news network.

Trump attacked former Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who joined the board of Fox News in March of last year, and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile, who was accused of leaking CNN town hall questions to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary in 2016.

Trump also called out “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, who he said was “nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes,” referring to CBS’s “Face the Nation” and NBC’s Chuck Todd, host of “Meet the Press” and “Meet the Press Daily.”
