Between giving oxygen to ABC’s hatchet-job and some poll numbers the president calls ‘suspect’, Trump is not happy with Fox.
And Trump, true to form, never lets something he thinks would tarnish his brand go unchallenged.
He took his objections to Twitter:
.@FoxNews Polls are always bad for me. They were against Crooked Hillary also. Something weird going on at Fox. Our polls show us leading in all 17 Swing States. For the record, I didn’t spend 30 hours with @abcnews, but rather a tiny fraction of that. More Fake News @BretBaier

After the beatings Trump took in polls before his election, and how consistently wrong they ALL were, even 24 hours before he was determined to have won, you might imagine he takes polls with a grain of salt.
During the interview, Trump got testy with Stephanopoulos after the Good Morning America host also mentioned the president’s sagging poll numbers.
Trump says polls showing him trailing Biden in key swing states are ‘fake’ and ‘phony.’
‘We’ve gotten great poll numbers recently,’ the president said. ‘Tremendous poll numbers.’
Trump claimed that internal polling done for his campaign shows him ‘winning everywhere.’
When Stephanopoulos asked Trump about recent reports of internal polling data commissioned by the president’s campaign showing Biden ahead in key states, the president replied: ‘Those polls don’t exist.’
But he didn’t much care for how they put a battle-tested Donald Trump up against a set of hypothetical would-be candidates that haven’t yet run the gauntlet.
As one observer noted, if the polls at this point in the race really meant anything, Dr. Carson would have become the President.
Is Trump right to be annoyed by it? Or is this just the 24-hour news cycle looking for something to fill up the time slots in the lull before the debates?
Is this a fight worth picking, or nah?
One thing is sure, Trump is never afraid to mix it up when he has to.
