Donald Trump boycotts Fox News over ‘unfair’ presidential campaign coverage
NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump says he’s done appearing on Fox News shows for the “foreseeable future” because he doesn’t like the network’s coverage of his presidential campaign.
The billionaire businessman and leading Republican candidate tweets that Fox News has been treating him “very unfairly” and that he’s going to stop appearing on its shows.
But a Fox News spokeswoman says that Trump only announced his boycott after the channel canceled a scheduled Trump appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” Thursday.
“When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome,” she said in a statement. “He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country.”
Trump has been feuding with the network since the first GOP primary debate, when he objected to moderator Megyn Kelly’s questions.
