President Donald Trump vented Tuesday about Fox News’ decision to air former President Barack Obama’s campaign rally for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Florida.

“Now @FoxNews is playing Obama’s no crowd, fake speech for Biden, a man he could barely endorse because he couldn’t believe he won,” Trump tweeted during Obama’s speech. “Also, I PREPAID many Millions of Dollars in Taxes.” (RELATED: Former President Barack Obama Extends ‘Best Wishes’ To Trump And Melania: ‘We’re All Americans, And We’re All Human Beings’)

Trump again attacked Fox News when asked Tuesday afternoon about Obama’s speech by reporters awaiting the president’s departure for Joint Base Andrews.

“I only saw he was on Fox, and Fox puts him on all the time and they put sleepy Joe on all the time,” he stated. “What they should do is they should show the pictures of Sleepy Joe yesterday when he rushed to Pennsylvania because he saw that I had 25,000 people, but he rushed to Pennsylvania and he did a statement and he got lost in a fog. They should show that.”

“Fox is very very disappointing,” Trump added. “This would not happen with Roger Ailes, I can tell you that.”


Trump has lashed out against Fox News in recent weeks and months over their 2020 election polling, which consistently shows him trailing Biden both nationally and in key battleground states.

“The biggest difference between now and 2016 is Fox News,” he tweeted earlier on Tuesday.

“They are a whole different deal,” he continued. “Despite this, our campaign is doing much better, with bigger crowds and even more (much!) enthusiasm, than we had in 2016. Big Debate & SCOTUS Win! Real Polls have us winning everywhere!”
