President Donald Trump blasted Fox News’ Shepard Smith on Wednesday, tweeting that “Fake news CNN is better than watching Shepard Smith, the lowest rated show on @FoxNews.” The tweet came during Smith’s show as he reported on Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden taking aim at Trump for supporting and encouraging white supremacy.
Smith acknowledged Trump’s tweet during his show Wednesday, saying, “Good afternoon, Mr. President. It’s nice to have you with us.” The host has been consistently critical of Trump since he was elected.
In March, Trump noted that Smith’s was the lowest-rated show on Fox News and that he thought Smith should be working for CNN.
Trump has also become more critical of Fox News in recent months. When the network reported on a poll that showed Trump losing to Biden in a hypothetical 2020 matchup, he tweeted, “Fox News is at it again. So different from what they used to be.”
He also said that Fox News was “changing fast” and forgetting “the people who got them there” after they showed coverage of bar patrons in France chanting “F— Trump.”
