Trump To Appear On Fox News Tuesday After Weeklong Boycott


This post has been updated.

After declaring that he would boycott Fox News last week, Donald Trump is set to appear on the Bill O’Reilly’s show on Tuesday, the New York Times reported.

Fox canceled Trump’s Thursday appearance with O’Reilly last week, which prompted Trump’s boycott, according to a Fox News spokesperson. The network revealed that it canceled Trump’s appearance after he announced he was boycotting the news channel.

“The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about,” a Fox spokesperson said in a statement provided to TPM last week. “When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country.”

Trump had complained about the network on Twitter before Fox News’ statement.

Before his short-lived boycott, Trump had renewed attacks on Fox host Megyn Kelly.

Trump is set to meet with Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes and senior Fox News editorial executives this week, but the date for their meeting has not yet been announced, according to the New York Times.

Correction: This post has been updated to show that Trump will appear on Fox News on Tuesday.
