By The Blaze. President Donald Trump railed against Fox News during his rally Monday for holding a town hall event with one of his presidential opponents, South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
“What is going on with Fox? What is going on there?” he said at the Pennsylvania rally.
Fox News held a town hall event with Buttigieg, who is in third place among the more than two dozen candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Hard to believe that @FoxNews is wasting airtime on Mayor Pete, as Chris Wallace likes to call him. Fox is moving more and more to the losing (wrong) side in covering the Dems. They got dumped from the Democrats boring debates, and they just want in. They forgot the people…..

“They’re putting more Democrats on than you have Republicans,” Trump lamented.
“I did want to watch, you always have to watch the competition, if you want to call it,” Trump continued. “And he was knocking the hell out of Fox and Fox has put him there. Someone’s going to have to explain the whole Fox deal to me.” (Read more from “President Trump Lashes out at Fox News” HERE)

The criticism comes as a surprise from Trump, who frequently hits so-called “fake news” networks but mostly praises Fox News. In 2017, Trump praised “Fox & Friends” for being named “most influential” because he watches the show, and has appeared for over a dozen interviews on the network since becoming president.
