President Donald Trump rolled up his sleeves over the weekend and went toe-to-toe with the so-called “fake news” media.
But this time it wasn’t CNN or MSNBC or even The New York Times he went after — it was Fox News.
He’s no big of the cable news network’s latest polls, which had a less than flattering result.
According to Fox News, Trump’s poll numbers have recently taken a turn for the worst — and Trump had something to say about it.
He’s reported to have a 56 percent disapproval rating, and the recent survey also has him losing out to the top four 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, including Joe Biden, and Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Bernie Sanders, I-V.T.
Trump indicated the polling was biased.
“There’s something going on at Fox [News],” Trump told reporters in New Jersey. “I’ll tell you right now — and I’m not happy with it.”
His words are on-trend with an increasingly hostile attitude toward the news network, whose top talent often gives him the most fair coverage.
Still, Trump said he’s skeptical of the Fox News’ polling methods.

“… I think Fox is making a big mistake,” he said.
He also used the weekend to bash Fox News pundit Juan Williams, one of the network’s lone Democrats.
“Juan Williams at @FoxNews is so pathetic,” Trump tweeted, “and yet when he met me in the Fox Building lobby, he couldn’t have been nicer as he asked me to take a picture of him and me for his family. Yet he is always nasty and wrong!”

Williams, also a columnist for The Hill, recently wrote an anti-Trump piece claiming that the “Resistance” leaders — political figures against the Trump administration — are “landing some punches” on the president.
Trump isn’t after all of Fox News’ top stars, however.
“I’m certainly happy, I think Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs, and I think Tucker Carlson and Laura, Jesse Watters, Jeanine, we have a lot of great people.”
