PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: The media is all on their side. When I say all, all but a little bit, including yourselves and some of the folks on Fox. Some of the folks around. You have some great people. You have Rush, who's doing, I hear, really well, I hear he's doing much better. And Mark Levin. And, you know, I mean we have a lot of support. You'd be amazed. We have a lot of support. The great Lou Dobbs.

So many people we have as supporters outside of just, you know, our Fox News. Which, you know, I have my own little difficulties with, if you want to know the truth. They put people on that I think are inappropriate and say very, very false things and people don't challenge them. I think they're trying to be very politically correct or fair and balanced, right, is the term? Fair and balanced. But I think they hurt themselves, if you want to know the truth.
