The comments came after Roberts interviewed the president's Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney and questioned him about the perception that Trump caved to Democrats to end the shutdown.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to voice his displeasure with reporters who work for right-leaning Fox News Sunday and said he thought CNN and MSNBC understood his “Wall negotiations” better.
“Never thought I’d say this but I think [John Roberts] and [Gillian Turner] [Fox News] have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN [and] NBC! Look to final results! Don’t know how my poll numbers are so good, especially up 19% with Hispanics?” Trump wrote Sunday.
“After all that I have done for the Military, our great Veterans, Judges (99), Justices (2), Tax & Regulation Cuts, the Economy, Energy, Trade [and] MUCH MORE, does anybody really think I won’t build the WALL? Done more in first two years than any President! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” Trump added minutes later.
Roberts and Turner are correspondents for Fox News Channel. Trump attacked their “understanding” of his play for a U.S.-Mexico border wall days after he signed a three-week deal to fund the government with no money for a border wall.
