Donald Trump has got his knickers in a twist over a series of adverts aired on Fox News criticising the former president.

Responding to adverts on the channel showing him in a less than positive light, Trump issued an aggy statement, claiming they are “horrible”. He said:

“What good is it if Fox News speaks well of me when they continually allow horrible and untruthful anti-Trump commercials to be run—and plenty of them?

“In the good old days, that would never have happened and today it happens all of the time.”

“Ratings-challenged CNN and MSNBC would never run a positive Trump ad—never.

“With so many forces against us, Big Tech, the Fake News Media, the Radical Left, the RINOs, and more, we are at such a disadvantage, but we will win anyway!”

It comes after a number of groups aiming to stop Trump from returning to politics bought ads on the network.

In February, Politico revealed that the Republican Accountability Project, which previously said it would spend a total of $50 million to back GOP lawmakers who impeached Trump as well as defeat his loyal supporters in office, will air ads of these nature on the channel.

Following his reaction, Anti-Trump PAC (political action committee) Lincoln Project told Mediaite: “We’re always running ads on Fox News in Bedminster and Mar-a-Lago area cable,” said Wilson, “because it’s a central part of our ‘audience of one’ strategy and as you can see, it’s highly effective. Now, I don’t know if he’s talking about one of our ads — other people have followed us into this strategy — but we’re the OGs of it.”

Meanwhile, similarly, Trump hostile PAC Meidas Touch celebrated Trump’s hissy fit and posted a clip of the advert that they run on the channel.

Poor Donald.
