Trump Lashes Out At Rupert Murdoch Over ‘Rigged’ Polls

Former President Donald Trump lashed out at News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch after the Wall Street Journal suggested a dip in his popularity.

“The Wall Street Journal and FoxNews keep pushing the narrative, through Trey Gowdy and others, that ‘BOTH’ Crooked Joe Biden and 45th President Donald J. Trump are unpopular within their own Party,” he said. “This happens to be true for Crooked Joe, where they won’t even let RFK Jr. have his votes fairly counted (more RIGGING, and STEALING Elections!), but VERY untrue for ‘TRUMP,’ where I have a 90% Approval Rating, and am crushing the ‘second tier’ candidates by 50, 60, and even 70 Points. THAT’S POPULAR!” he wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social.

Lashing out at Fox in particular, Trump questioned the network’s $800 million settlement it paid Dominion Voting Systems in April after the network aired Trump’s false claims of fraud about the company. Referring to the Wall Street Journal and Fox as “damaged goods,” he termed the settlement “stupid.”

This social media outburst from the former president is part of a series of attacks he has launched against Murdoch, The Journal and Fox News.

When Trump skipped the first GOP debate in Milwaukee last month, he said it was partly due to a “hostile” relationship with Fox, which was hosting the debate.

Despite this stance, the former president has been occasionally appearing on the network, which also features many pro-Trump commentators and analysts. The network will be hosting the second GOP debate on its sister network, Fox Business. Trump has said he would not attend that debate on September 27, either.
