The split between Donald Trump and Fox News continues to widen.
This feud could be one of the biggest developments in the 2024 election.
Fox News made a shocking prediction that is Donald Trump’s worst nightmare.
A recent Yahoo/YouGov poll found Donald Trump leading Florida Governor Ron DeSantis by a single point in an eight-candidate field.
But in a one-on-one matchup with just Trump and DeSantis, DeSantis leads Trump by three points.
This led some Never Trumpers and establishment Republicans to fret that if too many candidates ran, Trump would win a divided field on the strength of his rock-solid base like Trump did in 2016.
Fox News — like the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal — is owned by Rupert Murdoch.
And Murdoch — who never liked Trump to begin with since Murdoch supports amnesty and open borders — positioned his media empire to oppose Trump’s 2024 campaign.
Never Trump host Neil Cavuto spoke for establishment Republicans worried about a divided field by asking Fox Business Analyst Charles Gasparino if Trump could pull off a 2016-like win in the upcoming GOP presidential primary.
“What if you have a Donald Trump picking off all of these guys, just like what happened in 2016?” Cavuto wondered. “Would money then find then its way to him?”
Gasparino rejected that scenario telling Cavuto GOP megadonors were supposedly “exhausted” by Trump and that Trump was unelectable.
“There’s such exhaustion with him,” Gasparino stated. “And I know I’m gonna get emails from people. ‘Oh, you’re talking to the fatcats and this and that.’ I’m a ‘RINO,’” Gasparino replied.
“I don’t think Donald Trump can win a national election,” Gasparino stated.
“Didn’t they say the same in 2016?” Cavuto interjected.
Gasparino responded by claiming Trump was “tainted” meaning Americans would not elect Trump due to the events of January 6.
In addition, Gasparino said Trump hasn’t won since 2016 as Republicans lost the elections in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2022.
“Yeah, but it was different,” Gasparino replied. “He didn’t have the taint. And by the way, he hasn’t really won since 2016. That’s one of the problems. His candidates were disasters for the most part in the last election.”
Gasparino was not the only Fox News name dumping on Trump.
“The Five” co-host Jesse Watters, when discussing how POLITICO wrote a puff piece about Kamala Harris, regurgitated on the left’s biggest lies and January 6 joking about Trump inciting his followers to want to hang Mike Pence.
“Someone shot someone in the face! Did Politico write anything about his feelings? How about this? Mike Pence almost got hung by his president! Allegedly. Did anybody write a thousand words about how Mike was feeling?” Watters stated.
If Donald Trump wants to win the 2024 GOP presidential nomination Trump will have to defeat not just his rival candidates, but the spin coming out of the Murdoch media empire, and that includes Fox News.
