The President has called for an alternative channel as he called some of the Fox news anchors ‘Pro Democrat.’
Trump’s views come in a series of tweets at the weekend where he lashed out at Fox News on Sunday, targeting several figures at the network claiming that the network was “being fed Democrat talking points.”
He called the news network – which is right-leaning – ‘worse than fake news.’

The President bashed the news network back in April tweeting:
‘….Even the Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats laughed at the Fox suggestion. No respect for the people running @FoxNews. But Fox keeps on plugging to try and become politically correct. They put RINO Paul Ryan on their Board. They hire “debate questions to Crooked Hillary”….’
And: ‘fraud @donnabrazile (and others who are even worse). Chris Wallace is nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes. The people who are watching @FoxNews, in record numbers (thank you President Trump), are angry. They want an alternative now. So do I!’
President Trump called anchor Chris Wallace ‘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” who are all anti-Trump.
However, the President’s attacks have gotten harsher as he’s begun promoting networks like OANN over Fox News in specific time slots.
He tweeted that the news network was now ‘unwatchable.’
I was on Air Force One flying to the Great State of Texas, where I just landed. It is AMAZING in watching @FoxNews how different they are from four years ago. Not even watchable. They totally forgot who got them where they are!

The conservative OANN began trending almost immediately after earning the seal of approval from Trump, setting off another battle between his critics and supporters.
However, many berated Trump’s endorsement and OANN as a “far-right” conspiracy news organization but many conservatives say they are happy to switch channels away from Fox News.
Others berated the President for tweeting about news channels and not the loss of his brother Robert at the weekend.
