Fox News Names Anti-Trump Reporter As Co-moderator Of Next GOP Presidential Primary Debate

Donald Trump has a frosty relationship with Fox News.

It’s about to get worse.

And now Donald Trump is going to hate what Fox News just did to him.

As Black Eye Politics reports:

Donald Trump did not attend the first GOP presidential debate in large part because Fox News televised the debate and Trump thinks the network is in the tank.

During the daytime, Fox News programming regularly features a host of Trump-haters like former Attorney General Bill Barr (who defends Joe Biden using Democrat prosecutors to indict Donald Trump), RINO former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and commentators like former George Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen.

These guests having regular airtime is no coincidence as it’s been reported that Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch wants the GOP to exile Trump from the party and pick a new standard-bearer.

In a recent interview with Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy, Tucker Calrson confirmed there were editorial edicts banning Trump from appearing on the network.

In fact, Trump did not appear on the network for nearly six months between the end of 2022 and early 2023.

Many Trump supporters saw the banishment of Trump from Fox News airwaves as the network trying to give other candidates a chance to make their case that they should lead the Republican Party – like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who was booked over 100 times on Fox.

And Fox Business Channel is airing the second Republican debate on September 27 at the Reagan Library.

Trump stated he won’t attend the debate as the Reagan library head was former Washington Post publisher Fred Ryan whom, as Trump explained, would never give him fair coverage in the paper.

And just to show how biased the debate would be against Trump, Fox announced that anti-Trump reporter at Univision, Ilia Calderón, would co-moderate the debate.

Calderon parroted the media smear from the 2020 campaign that Donald Trump encouraged white supremacists to commit violence.

At one point during the first debate between Trump and Joe Biden, moderator Chris Wallace – then at Fox News – asked Trump to condemn white supremacists.

Trump asked for an example and Wallace named the Proud Boys, saying Trump needed to tell them that “they need to stand down.”

“Sure,” Trump began before saying “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by.”

Even though Trump used the language Wallace introduced, the media hivemind concocted another fake scandal about Trump demanding his supporters to riot in the streets.

Calderon repeated this smear on social media.

“A dangerous moment of the debate,” Calderón wrote. “Trump not only does not condemn but empowers white supremacists.”

Fox News is clearly no friend of Donald Trump.

And as long as Trump believes this to be the case, he will likely not show up for any debate Fox News televises.
