President Donald Trump went on a Twitter tirade against Fox News Thursday morning, escalating recent attacks against his long preferred cable network.
“.@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE,” Trump tweeted.
“Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there.”
.@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews!

Trump also lamented the network for forgetting “the Golden Goose,” a possible reference to himself.
Insider’s Tom Lobianco reported last month that Trump’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner was floating a new Trump-branded media outlet, and the president is now looking into starting his own digital media company in an effort at revenge against Fox News, according to Axios.
There has been an on-again-off-again dynamic in Trump’s praise and criticism of Fox, with the president still regularly live tweeting its programming and tweeting video clips of programming where guests or hosts praise him.
On Thursday, Trump retweeted several regular Twitter users throughout the morning, with a few saying they want to switch from Fox News to Newsmax, a less widely distributed but more explicitly pro-Trump network.
Fox has been completely unfair and untruthful. Moving to Newsmax.

Hey old Fox News lovers… go to Newsmax… last least they are trying to be honest

Another user put it more bluntly: “#foxnews is dead.”
#foxnews is dead
