Saagar Enjeti White House Correspondent

President Donald Trump praised news mogul Matt Drudge during a Friday morning surprise interview on “Fox & Friends.”

“I saw a headline on Drudge, I think, this morning,” Fox News host Steve Doocy told Trump Friday. “Unemployment at a 44-year low.”

“Drudge is great, by the way,” Trump said on “Fox & Friends.” “Matt Drudge is a great gentleman, who really — I don’t know, he’s got an ability to capture stories that people want to see.”

“But that was the number-one story on Drudge — 44-year low, unemployment,” he continued.

Drudge is the founder of the influential Drudge Report website, which posts links to news stories from around the web.

Trump walked onto the North Lawn driveway of the White House, where he showed up to be interviewed by Doocy. (RELATED: Trump Is Asked About North Korea Meeting — He NUKES Question Into Another Dimension)
