President Trump: Fox News Panders To Far-Left, Democrats Silence Conservatives

President Trump is criticizing Fox News for interviewing far-left Democrats with a strong anti-Trump bias.

In a Sunday tweet, the president blasted the recent Fox interview with California Congressman Eric Swalwell. He said Swalwell is a loser who got zero percent voter support in his failed 2020 presidential bid.


President Trump also criticized Fox’s decision to interview other far-left activists, such as lawmakers Pramila Jayapal and David Cicilline. He said Democrats are working to silence conservative speakers while Fox is pandering to the far-left crowd.

The president also called out other ‘fake news’ media outlets over their apparent failure to cover his recent progress overseas.

Last week, the president returned from a NATO summit in the U.K. At the end of the summit, mainstream media chose to highlight a viral video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, among other leaders, gossiping about the president.

Trump has repeatedly gone after Fox News and its hosts in recent months over their coverage of the impeachment inquiry and their willingness to talk to Democratic lawmakers about it. He singled out Fox News host Shannon Bream in late November, asking why she would “waste airtime” by hosting Swalwell, a Democratic congressman from California and a member of the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees.

“Fox should stay with the people that got them there, not losers!” Trump said.

He also attacked Wallace as “nasty” and “obnoxious” earlier that month after the broadcaster aggressively questioned House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) over Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.

On Sunday, Wallace and Cicilline, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, discussed Democrats’ movement on drafting articles of impeachment against the president. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said last week that she had directed the panel’s chairman, Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), to move forward with that step.

Cicilline said on “Fox News Sunday” that the House had seen “a classic example of an impeachable offense.”

“The focus is on the president’s misconduct, asking a foreign government to interfere in our elections. … I think all of the potential articles of impeachment are on the table. That will be a decision the Judiciary Committee makes, but the Judiciary Committee will have all the evidence,” he said.
