Trump Complains That Only Fox News Covered His CIA Speech Fairly

President Donald Trump continues to offer praise for Fox News, telling ABC News’ David Muir in an interview that aired Wednesday night that only Fox News covered his speech at the CIA fairly.

“That speech was a home run,” Trump said. “We see what Fox said. They said it was one of the great speeches. They showed the people applauding and screaming and — and they were all CIA.”

“People loved it. They loved it. They gave me a standing ovation for a long period of time. They never even sat down, most of them, during the speech. There was love in the room,” the President told Muir. “You and other networks covered it very inaccurately. I hate to say this to you and you probably won’t put it on but turn on Fox and see how it was covered. And see how people respond to that speech.”

The interview follows Trump’s Tuesday night praise for Fox News’ inauguration coverage.
