Fox News Anchor Bret Baier Spotted With Trump at Mar-a-Lago

During the Thanksgiving weekend, Fox News anchor and host of Special Report Bret Baier was spotted posing for a photo with Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago club.

The reporter for the president’s favorite news network was reportedly eating dinner at the same time as Trump — as he was a guest of golf legend Jack Nicklaus for the weekend — but was not dining with POTUS specifically. In a statement released by Fox News and first reported by TheWrap‘s Jon Levine, the network stated the two ran into each other by happenstance and Baier was then asked to pose for a photo.

“Bret Baier and his wife attended a dinner at Mar-a-Lago as a guest of Jack Nicklaus, whose home they were staying at for the weekend. He was asked to take a photo with Nicklaus and the President and obliged,” stated a Fox News public relations rep.

Fun with POTUS! And THE Nicklaus’s, and the Baiers.

While Trump has a well-known affinity for Fox News, he has yet to appear on Special Report to sit down with Baier — despite the reporter being one of the network’s main news talents. However, during the same weekend the two were spotted together, Trump sounded off on his love for Fox News and his disdain for rival cable news network CNN.

“Fox News is MUCH more important in the United States than CNN, but outside of the U.S., CNN International is still a major source of (Fake) news, and they represent our Nation to the WORLD very poorly. The outside world does not see the truth from them!” Tweeted the president last night.

Though Baier is considered to be one of the network’s few leading personalities who is not vehemently pro-Trump, this Instagram shot may hurt the reporter’s credibility as he attempts to remain objective at an outlet viewed by many as present day, US-Pravda.
