Donald Trump Slams Ron DeSantis & Fox News: "He Sucks, & So Does Fox News"
Donald Trump called out both Ron DeSantis and Fox News on his Truth Social platform, Monday. In a pair of firey posts, the former president trolled his opponent for his dropping poll numbers and complained about the direction of the iconic conservative news network. In particular, Trump referenced the recent firing of Tucker Carlson.
"Just watching Fox News. They are sooo bad, just like the Globalist Wall Street Journal and the now, way down, New York Post. They are desperately pushing DeSanctimonious who, regardless, is dropping like a rock," Trump wrote on Truth Social. "He's even down 20 points in Florida, which was third worst in Covid, & where I got 1.2 million more votes than he did. RINO Mark Thiessen, a Bush flunky, is constantly on pushing DeSanctus, giving bad info. Even said I 'lost Iowa last time around,' I won BIG. He sucks, & so does Fox News!"

"Fox News is way down in the Ratings. After firing Tucker Carlson and refusing to fight against a VERY Corrupt and Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, which just cost them plenty of money, prestige, and RATINGS, they are a far cry from what they used to be," Trump wrote. He added that Fox News has "become the DeSanctimonious Network, but it will never work because he doesn't have the goods. Without my Endorsement, he was a dead man walking. Even with Fox, he's already pretty close to that again!"
Later in the day, Trump shared a poll that showed him at 55%, up eight points from April. DeSantis, on the other hand, trailed at just 17%. He also noted that he's leading President Joe Biden by 7 points in a national poll, but didn't cite which one.
