A new report in The New York Times is questioning the relationship between Fox News and former President Donald Trump.
Reporting on the last time Trump appeared on Fox, the Times noted that on April 13 Trump did a phone interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Also during that interview, which covered many subjects, host Hannity tried to lead Trump into making specific statements when Trump answered clearly.
When asked how he vied Putin, Trump responded,” I got along with them well. That doesn’t mean they are good people. that doesn’t mean anything other than the fact that I understood them, and perhaps they understood me. Maybe they understood me even better, that’s OK, because they new there would be a big penalty.”
Hannity then said,” I want to understand your thinking, though, and the thinking is: “We got along, but you knew that they were looking out for their interests at all times.”
To which Trump replied,” 100 percent.”
But Hannity continued to requestion, appearing to try to get Trump to say certain words.
