Trump turns on Fox News: ‘Even less understanding... than fake news CNN & NBC’

President Donald Trump lashed out at his favorite network on Sunday, accusing two Fox News journalists of having “less understanding” of his proposed border wall than the “fake news” at his usual media targets, CNN and NBC. 

Trump specifically called out the network’s chief White House correspondent John Roberts and Washington correspondent Gillian Turner:

Roberts subbed for Fox News anchor Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” and Turner was part of a discussion on the show.

Trump’s initial tweet misspelled Turner’s name, tagging the wrong person. He then deleted it and fired off a new tweet with the correct tag.

The numbers in Trump’s tweet refer to an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist Poll earlier this month, which found 50 percent of Latino adults approve of his job as president, a 19 percent jump since December, The Hill reported. 

Barbara Carvalho, the director of the poll, told PBS that it was not a poll of Latinos but a small part of a much larger poll. If isolated, that portion of the poll would have a 9.9-point margin of error. 

We’re really not looking to draw conclusions about what smaller subgroups within the population feel,” Carvalho said.

The larger finding of the poll was a 39 percent approval rating for Trump overall, down from 42 percent in December, versus 53 percent who disapprove, which is up from 49 percent last month. In addition, just 30 percent of Americans said they would definitely vote for Trump in 2020, versus 57 percent who would definitely vote against him.
