Furious Donald Trump asks Fox News to stop showing an unflattering photo of him where he looks ‘fat and orange’ with his ‘chin pulled back’
- Donald Trump, 77, loved Fox News and is known to be a regular viewer
Donald Trump has asked Fox News to stop using unflattering photographs of him that make him look “fat and orange” with his “chin pulled back”.
Trump, 77, also accused the cable network of not showing polling data where he “beats Biden” by “a lot.”
The former US president loved the right-wing news channel and is known to be a regular viewer of their morning show, ‘Fox and Friends’.
Although the network widely supported him in the US media during his presidency, Trump’s views on the network plunged after he was the first to call the crucial state of Arizona for Joe Biden in the presidential election. of 2020, according to The telegraph.
Trump said on his Truth Social platform: ‘Why doesn’t Fox and Friends show all the polls where I beat Biden, by a lot. They just won’t!

“Also they deliberately show the worst pictures of me, especially the big ‘orange’ one with my chin pulled back.”
He added: “They think they’re getting away with something, they’re not.” Just like 2016 again… And then they want me to debate!
It comes after Trump complained about the lack of air conditioning at a campaign event in New Hampshire earlier this month and said, “You know what the press will say?” They’ll say Trump didn’t look good. He was extremely wet. It’s 104 or 105 degrees (40C) here. But we’re okay with that, right?
Fox News is set to host the first debate of the Republican presidential primary in Milwaukee next Wednesday.
Trump has previously suggested he would not participate, despite being one of eight candidates to pass the party’s fundraising and polling threshold.
Fox executives are apparently so desperate to secure Trump’s participation that their chief executive Suzanne Scott and chairman Jay Wallace traveled to Bedminster to lobby him.
But suspicions remain that Trump is planning counter-programming to upstage his opponents on Wednesday via a campaign event or an interview.
47% support Biden and 46% support Trump, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.
