Donald Trump’s political career has largely been defined by a number of salient, pointed criticisms of the status quo, with the Republican firebrand acting as the proverbial bull in a china shop that Washington DC desperately needed.
Of course, one of the most powerful points that Trump made during his time in office was aimed directly at the mainstream media, that he rebranded as “fake news”, and just how powerful these infotainment companies are.
His latest rebuke of the cable news scene has the former Commander in Chief knocking his once-beloved Fox News, and surprisingly offering a helping hand to his long-time opponents at CNN.
Former President Trump on Sunday accused Fox News of pushing a Democratic agenda while offering to help rival network CNN become a “gold mine” by going conservative.
“Wow! Fox News is really pushing the Democrats and the Democrat agenda,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “Gets worse every single day. So many Dems interviewed with only softball questions, then Republican counterparts get creamed.”

“If ‘low ratings’ CNN ever went conservative, they would be an absolute gold mine, and I would help them do so,” Trump wrote.
In the days following the end of Trump’s first term, there were rumors aplenty that the former NYC business mogul and reality television star was considering creating his own media corporation, but The Don chose to bring Truth Social to life instead.
