WASHINGTON – Negative poll numbers have deepened President Donald Trump's resentments toward Fox News.
"From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll," Trump tweeted Thursday.
"Whoever their Pollster is, they suck."
The president did not specify which poll numbers bothered him so much, but Fox News reported on Wednesday that a new survey shows that of registered voters, "a new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office."
A frequent guest on Fox News programs, yet more of a critic of its coverage in recent months, Trump also tweeted that "@FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days."
Fox News poll: 51% favor Trump's impeachment and removal from office
...Court Justice & I turned him down (he’s been terrible ever since), Shep Smith, @donnabrazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from @CNN), & others, @FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 10, 2019
In his critique, Trump singled out legal commentator Andrew Napolitano – who he claimed "wanted to be a Supreme Court Justice & I turned him down" – and news anchor Shep Smith. As he has before, Trump criticized Fox for retaining Democratic political consultant Donna Brazile as a commentator.
Trump concluded his latest critique by saying: "@FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!"
