Donald Trump returned to his favorite network Wednesday for another softball interview with Lou Dobbs of Fox Business, during which the anchor showered him with praise and allowed the president to speak at length about “fake news” and his political enemy, Hillary Clinton.
Dobbs has previously said that the president’s first 100 days in office were “pretty close to perfect,” and earlier this month he claimed Trump’s presidency “may be the most accomplished presidency in modern American history,” according to the HuffPost.
CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller, who has chronicled presidential media interviews since the Clinton administration, noted that the interview marks the president’s 18th interview with Fox News—plus another one for Fox News Radio.
Dobbs told his audience that Trump is “changing [the country] for the better” and describing the president as “one of the most loved and respected” presidents “in history.”
“You are, if I may say, everything as advertised as you ran for president,” Dobbs said to close the interview. “And [I] appreciate everything you’re doing. Thanks so much.”
Trump returned the praise, telling Dobbs he watches his show “absolutely almost all the time, even if it means TiVo or whatever device you happen to be using at the time.”
