Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to air his grievances at the network.
In his latest social media outburst, Donald Trump has indicated that he will no longer be appearing on any Fox programs because he feels that their negative coverage of his presidential nomination campaign has been unfair.
“Fox News has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future,” the Republican front-runner tweeted on Wednesday (September 23rd).
The ill feeling between Trump and the Fox network began with his comments about Fox’s political commentator Megyn Kelly that he made after the first Republican primary debate. Trump was unhappy at Kelly’s line of questioning about comments he had made about women in the past, and in a later interview with CNN, he said she had “blood coming out of her eyes… blood coming out of her wherever.”
