President Trump has taken to Twitter to call out the Fox News personalities who have voiced their disproval of President Trump's tariffs.

According to Mediaite:

President Donald Trump appeared unhappy with Fox Business on Tuesday as he called out several of their anchors by name after they discussed tariffs and trade wars with China and Mexico in a less-than-flattering way. Trump tweeted:

 

Trump’s call-out for Stuart Varney, Maria Bartiromo, Dagen McDowell and Steve Forbes of Forbes Magazine seems to be derived from multiple segments he watched this morning.

The first portion comes from Kevin Hassett‘s interview with Bartiromo, in which, Forbes and McDowell also involved themselves as they spoke to the outgoing White House Council of Economic Advisors chairman. As Hassett spoke optimistically about Trump’s chances of making a deal with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the upcoming G20 Summit, he was peppered with critical questions about whether tariffs are doing any good with current indications of an economic slowdown.

Another segment that seemed to get Trump’s attention was Varney and Bartiromo’s discussion about whether the president will de-escalate America’s trade wars if he can hammer out a deal at the summit.

President Trump is optimistic that a deal can be reached with China that deals with not only trade issues but the Chinese Regime's continues theft of American intellectual property. The Fox Hosts are not confident in this outcome.
