Trump Blasts DNC for Barring Fox News From Debates: Then I’ll Do the Same ‘With the Fake News Networks’

President Donald Trump blasted the DNC tonight for its decision to bar Fox News from primary debates.

The DNC announced the decision today, citing a New Yorker report about the relationship between the president and the cable news network. Fox News responded in a statement asking them to reconsider.

Trump is now suggesting he may respond in kind by not doing any general election debates “with the Fake News Networks.”

“Democrats just blocked @FoxNews from holding a debate,” the president tweeted tonight. “Good, then I think I’ll do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!”
