President Trump lashed out at Fox News after the network’s latest poll showed growing support for his impeachment and removal from office.
“From the day I announced I was running for President, I have NEVER had a good @FoxNews Poll,” Trump tweeted on Thursday.
“Whoever their Pollster is, they suck. But @FoxNews is also much different than it used to be in the good old days,” he added.
…Court Justice & I turned him down (he’s been terrible ever since), Shep Smith, @donnabrazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from @CNN), & others, @FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!

A Fox poll released Wednesday found 51 percent of respondents supported Trump’s impeachment and removal from office.
Four percent of participants said the president should be impeached but not removed, and 40 percent were completely against impeachment.
Trump also lashed out at prominent Fox News employees who have been critical of him and his interactions with the president of Ukraine.
“@FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore,” Trump tweeted. “It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!”
Trump ripped Fox News’s senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, who argued that Trump had already confessed to a crime when he admitted to encouraging the Ukrainian president to look into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son.
Trump claimed that the retired judge wanted to be on the Supreme Court but that he turned the judge down.
The president also attacked Fox News anchor Shepard Smith and contributor Donna Brazile for regularly fact-checking his false statements.
