Following President Donald Trump's outbursts on Twitter targeting London Mayor Sadiq Khan, the president also went on about his favorite subject: fake news.
Fox News host Neil Cavuto discussed the subject on his show, sending a message to the president that sounded a lot like much-needed advice.
“Mr. President, it is not the fake news media that’s your problem. It’s you,” the host said. Instead of "scapegoating" and “acting beastly with [his] own guys,” Cavuto urged Trump to use “these critiques you’re now hearing from usually friendly and supportive allies as sort of like an intervention because firing off these angry missives and tweets risks your political destruction.”
As the country shows concern over the president's decision to turn his back to United States diplomatic obligations with its allies both during his NATO speech and later when he made the decision to exit the Paris agreement, many criticized the president — harshly.
While Cavuto is a conservative Fox News host, he may have felt the need to also criticize the president by warning him that he may be bringing about his own political downfall with his recent moves. But what many people do not know is that this isn't the first time the host and the president have had somewhat public feuds.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump flatly refused to go on Cavuto's Fox News show, claiming the host does not treat him properly. Cavuto claimed then that he wasn't sure why the candidate would have said such things, but now the anchor's recent remarks might finally keep the president permanently away from the “Your World” TV show.
Considering their past disagreements, it might be safe to say the president will not be giving Cavuto's advice any consideration — to everyone's despair.
