Republican presidential hopeful and GOP front runner Donald Trump today announced he will not be appearing on any Fox News shows “for the forseeable future” citing unfair treatment by Fox News hosts.
But a Fox News spokesperson suggested Trump wasn’t telling the full story.
The tiff is only the latest salvo in what has become an all-out war between Trump and Fox, in which there were two apparent cease-fires reached in August. “The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about”, the statement explained.
Trump took issue with comments made on the show and its decision not to cite a recent poll showing his lead in the presidential race.
What happened between Fox and Trump? “Ailes will be joined by senior Fox editorial executives”, the Fox representative said in a statement shared with The Hill.

He fired off a series of angry tweets. It remains to be seen whether his hiatus from Fox News will impact his popularity. “Now if other people had that, instead of having 15 followers, they would probably use it. I’m not sure”.
“That’s like the worst thing you can give Donald Trump is this tweeting thing”, the anchor said. “Terrible show”.

But that same afternoon, Fox said that Trump did not tell the whole story.
