gave The Trump-Fox News rift Monday was widened when former President Donald Trump walked out on the hosts. Fox and Friends.
morning show, once owned by Trump Favorite cable news programorganized by His three most loyal brutesis now apparently out for blood against the former president — at least according to Trump himself.
“@foxandfriends really screwed up my poll numbers, no doubt on purpose. That show has been terrible – gone ‘dark side,'” Trump posted on TruthSocial on Monday, complaining. That show pointed out the many “outliers” among right-wing youth organization Turning Point USA at its Tampa confab last weekend. In which about 79 percent support of the former president was shown.
gave Fox and Friends The segment noted Trump’s strong popularity among conference attendees, but host Steve Doocy strongly denied the results. “You’ve got people from all over the country in Tampa. I’m thinking it’s a little different than some of the other polls we’ve seen in the last couple of weeks,” Ducey said, pointing to the blueprint. Said, University of New Hampshire, and The New York Times Polls show Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis with a lead over the MAGA kingpin.
“So, it’s like young people who are as active in this event as the former president,” Ducey explained, “but, looking at these other polls, there are different answers.”
Trump did not take too kindly to his on-air friend’s critical observation. “Actually, in almost all the polls I have all the Republicans and Biden very much ahead. RINO Paul Ryan, one of the weakest and worst speakers of all time, must be running the place.” He wrote, referring to former Rep. Ryan’s position on the board of directors of Fox Corporation.
Monday’s spat cemented the end of Trump’s love affair with the program after years of friendly interviews and frantic phone calls. They The show is often dialed in. Before, during, and after his presidency, he sought to speak directly to his base amid numerous scandals (and coups). His last call to the program was Dec. 2, 2021, according to a transcript search.
Meanwhile, the morning show — and Fox News more broadly — appears to be rallying more around DeSantis, an increasingly popular figure in conservative circles and the likely favorite for the 2024 Republican nomination that Trump. should not run. DeSantis came in second in the TPUSA straw poll with 19 percent, but has often topped similar straw polls when Trump’s name is excluded.

“Anyway, thanks for the turning point,” he wrote. “The crowd and ‘Love’ was amazing!”
