After pretty much all of Trump’s allies turned on him after he caved on the border wall and the government shutdown, the President took to Twitter Sunday to lash out at his old best buddies: Fox News.
In his first tweet, Trump accuses Fox News commentators John Roberts and Gillian Turner of having a poorer understanding of the negotiations around the border wall than his favorite news media punching bags CNN & NBC. This is almost certainly true, but not for the reason Trump thinks.
Trump originally tagged some random lady with a locked Twitter account in the place of Gillian Turner, but quickly deleted that and replaced it.

Trump has been citing a single poll with the supposed 19 percent increase in approval among Hispanic individuals for several days. However, a closer look at the study finds that the sample size of Hispanics polled is so low that the margin of error is 9.9 points. The key finding of that poll, which Trump conveniently ignores, is that only 30 percent of people polled said they would vote for him in 2020.
Despite breaking yet another promise related to his wall by re-opening the government before his demanded funding was secured, Trump insists that he will get it built.
After all that I have done for the Military, our great Veterans, Judges (99), Justices (2), Tax & Regulation Cuts, the Economy, Energy, Trade & MUCH MORE, does anybody really think I won’t build the WALL? Done more in first two years than any President! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 28, 2019
It seems that lots of people really think he won’t build the wall, including Ann Coulter and other former Trump worshipers. This isn’t the first time that Fox News has criticized Trump despite becoming little more than the Trump Propaganda Network. They also disapproved of his sudden declaration that he was pulling all U.S. troops out of Syria. He didn’t like that, either.
Does Trump have any friends left? Not on Twitter, he doesn’t.

Which Hispanics? The ones working at your golf courses?— What time is it? (@adreamersview) January 28, 2019
Pretty sure @GillianHTurner at least knows how to look up a Twitter handle. Can't say the same for you. The wall is a losing proposition. Cut your losses, and resign. (Hey, it's even easier than filing bankruptcy.)— okay (@nj713) January 28, 2019

Unable to handle the idea that their idol of white supremacy is losing all support, die hard Trump supporters are instead turning on Fox News.
FOX is just like the rest, open borders advocates for the benefit of corporations. They want to make their viewers think there is no way the U.S. can stop anyone from just walking into our country any time they want.— Steph (@steph93065) January 28, 2019
The only news worth watching is @OANN
Everyone in the ‘news’ takes a shot at President Trump to make themselves appear knowledgeable. They are not.— CC (@ChatByCC) January 28, 2019
They are not reporting NEWS they are simply reporting their own speculation. This is a careless misrepresentation and shameful.
Yes I agree with Trump here. Fox News is terrible. Go after them.— Govind Acharya (@acharya_dude) January 28, 2019
This is just getting sad.
