JUST IN: Fox News Hosting Town Hall With Trump and Bloomberg Around Super Tuesday
Fox News is set to host a town hall with President Donald Trump next Thursday in Scranton, Pennsylvania, moderated by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum.
The town hall, which will air between 6:30 and 7:30 P.M., is reportedly the president’s first interview with the two Fox News personalities since Baier interviewed Trump in June 2018 and MacCallum interviewed him in April 2017.
In a statement, Fox News president and executive editor Jay Wallace said, “We are pleased to host incumbent President Donald Trump for his first town hall of the 2020 election cycle. As Americans continue deliberating their choice for president, FOX News Channel is proud to provide a platform for candidates across the political spectrum to inform the public on their stances.”
Last year, Baier and MacCallum moderated a Fox News town hall for 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — a decision which angered President Trump.
“So weird to watch Crazy Bernie on @FoxNews. Not surprisingly, @BretBaier and the ‘audience’ was so smiley and nice,” he complained on Twitter. “Very strange, and now we have @donnabrazile?”

During the town hall, Sanders repeatedly criticized the president and called him a “pathological liar.”
UPDATE 2:19 p.m. EST: Fox News announced they are also hosting a town hall with 2020 Democratic candidate Mike Bloomberg on March 2, also moderated by Baier and MacCallum.
