At a campaign rally in Nashville, Tennessee on March 15, President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked the press, saying, “They’re bad people, folks!” and calling the press “the fake, fake media.” Minutes after the rally, Trump appeared in a pre-taped interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and praised the hosts of the network’s morning show, Fox & Friends. In the past, Trump has credited Fox & Friends as a significant aide in his becoming president.
DONALD TRUMP: I saw this morning on Fox & Friends, I watch -- I like that group of three people, but they had a man who was saying “Trump is the greatest president ever, and there will never be one like him.” Now, the thing is, I've only been there for like 50 days, but he was very enthusiastic, but he was talking -- he is a manufacturer, and I have taken off regulations by the thousands. And we are just -- we are just starting. We are just starting. So, there is great optimism about the economy, but we have to get the taxes reduced.
