Donald Trump Blasts Fox News Polls and Pundits: 'Fox Has Changed... There's Something Going On... I'm Not Happy With It'

President Donald Trump lashed out at his favorite cable news channel, Fox News, on Sunday over the network's recent political polls and some of their pundits.

"Fox is a lot different than it used to be. I can tell you that," the president told reporters in New Jersey.

Trump went on to mention Fox News analyst Juan Williams and former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile. "They have the wonderful woman that gave Hillary Clinton the questions," the president said. "That was a terrible thing. And all of a sudden, she's working for Fox. What's she doing working for Fox?"

"Fox has changed, and my worst polls have always been from Fox. There's something going on at Fox. I'll tell you right now. And I'm not happy with it," Trump continued. "I don't know what's happening with Fox... They have Juan Williams who has never says a positive thing and yet when I show up at the Fox building, he's out there [saying], 'Oh sir, could I have a picture of you? Could I have a picture?.' He was 100 percent nice."

"They have to run it the way they want to run it. But Fox is different. There's no question about it, I think they're making a big mistake because Fox was treated very badly by the Democrats. Very, very badly. Having to do with the debates and other things," he added. "I think Fox is making a big mistake because, you know, I'm the one that calls the shots on the really big debates."

Trump then listed some Fox personalities that he still likes. "Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs, Tucker Carlson and Laura [Ingraham]. Jesse Waters and Jeanine [Pirro]," the president said.

Earlier on Sunday, Trump lashed out at Williams on Twitter after the Fox News analyst criticized him during a re-aired segment on Fox News Sunday at around 2 p.m. ET. "Juan Williams at @FoxNews is so pathetic, and yet when he met me in the Fox Building lobby, he couldn't have been nicer as he asked me to take a picture of him and me for his family. Yet he is always nasty and wrong!" the president tweeted.

Trump's remarks against his favorite network comes days after his disapproval rating soared to 56 percent in a new Fox News poll. The poll, published on Wednesday, showed a five percent increase in the president's disapproval rating from last month's figures. According to the network, the president's disapproval rating has only been higher once, in October 2017 when it was at 57 percent.
