President Trump has long been a critic of CNN, calling it “fake news” — and when someone was watching it on Air Force One, he took action.

According to a New York Times report, “On the first couple’s recent trip overseas, Melania Trump’s television aboard Air Force One was tuned to CNN. President Trump was not pleased.”

The report continues:

“He raged at his staff for violating a rule that the White House entourage should begin each trip tuned to Fox — his preferred network over what he considers the ‘fake news’ CNN — and caused ‘a bit of a stir’ aboard Air Force One, according to an email obtained by The New York Times.”

Trump isn’t the only one who would rather watch Fox News over CNN.

CNN’s ratings are consistently much lower than Fox News. (RELATED: COMPLETE MELTDOWN — CNN Loses 30 Percent Of Viewers Since Last Year While Fox News Increased Viewers)
