President Trump jabbed at his on-again-off-again favorite news network for supposedly not helping his reelection effort in a Thursday afternoon tweet.

In his tweet, Trump slammed Fox News for having “garbage littered all over,” accusing some of the network’s hosts and contributors of repeating “the worst of Democrat speaking points.”

Trump’s latest tirade against the network comes just days after host Neil Cavuto reacted with alarm to the revelation that Trump is taking hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malaria drug that is unproven to treat the novel coronavirus, as a precaution while speaking to reporters on Monday.

The President’s Thursday afternoon tweet isn’t the first to accuse Fox News of siding with Democrats. Trump railed against the network in a tweet late last month for “being fed Democrat talking points.”
