The View Praises Fox’s Chris Wallace For Grilling Trump on Anti-Press Rhetoric: ‘Great Journalist’

The View praised Fox News anchor Chris Wallace for his tough interview with President Donald Trump that aired on Sunday.

In Monday’s opening segment, the hosts took on Trump’s attacks on Retired Admiral William McRaven, who the president derided as a “Hillary Clinton fan” and said: “Wouldn’t it have been nice if we got Osama Bin Laden a lot sooner than that, wouldn’t it have been nice?”

Sunny Hostin applauded Wallace challenging Trump on his describing the press as the enemy of the people.

In the Fox News Sunday interview, after Trump told Wallace he doesn’t consider his network “fake news,” the anchor told the president that when he calls CNN and the New York Times the enemy of the people, “we’re in solidarity, sir.”

“That was very, very important to note,” Hostin said.

“Good for him,” Behar agreed.

“They’re all in it together,” Hostin said.

Later in the segment, Abby Huntsman, Wallace’s former colleague at Fox, called him a “great journalist” who has “been trying to get that interview for so long.”
