Donald Trump seems to deliberately dig at Fox News managers, noting that their most viewed programs are the ones that show him in a favorable light.
The president made the comment in a tweet on Saturday morning, in which he also congratulated his friend Sean Hannity for achieving first place in August's cable news ratings.
& # 39; Has anyone noticed that the top shows on @foxnews and cable reviews are those that are reasonable (or great) for your favorite president, me! Congratulations to @seanhannity for the number one show on Cable Television! & # 39; the commander-in-chief wrote.
The tweet comes after rating obsessed Trump has repeatedly landed on the network in recent weeks by claiming that several of his programs & guests had been hyper-critical of him.

Trump & # 39; s observation, which was shared on Twitter, seemed like an excavation at Fox execs to allow programs & # 39; s and presenters who criticized him on the network
On Wednesday, Adweek reported that the Hannity program, The Hannity Report, had an average of 3.27 million viewers per episode in August – an increase of 6% over the same month last year.
Hannity – who once appeared on stage during a Trump meeting – often uses his program to publicly express his support for the president.
Meanwhile, the second and third highest rated shows of the month are also those who often defend the president in light of the harsh criticism he receives from many of the media.
Tucker Carlson Tonight took the number two spot, averaging 3.11 million viewers – a stunning 22% increase over the same time last year.
Meanwhile, The Ingraham Angle, presented by Laura Ingraham, became third with a nightly average of 2.61 million viewers.
Meanwhile, Trump & # 39; s many malicious CNN did not have programs & # 39; s that made it to the top 20.
Cuomo Prime Time, hosted by Chris Cuomo, came in 22nd place, with an average number of viewers of 1.1 million.

Trump recently destroyed Fox and claimed that they strayed from their conservative public population and were too soft for Democrats.
& # 39; I just watched how @FoxNews strongly promoted the Democrats through their DNC communications director, and spit on whatever they wanted with zero pushback anchor, @SandraSmithFox. Terrible considering that Fox could not even start a debate, the Dems do NOT give them anything! & # 39; the president tweeted last week.
& # 39; @CNN and @MSNBC are all responsible for the Open Border Socialists (or further). Fox rents & # 39; give Hillary the questions & # 39; @donnabrazile, Juan Williams and low ratings Shep Smith. HOPELESS & CLUELESS! They must go completely LEFT and I will still find a way to win – That's what I do, win. Unfortunately! I don't want to win for myself, I just want to win for the people, & he continued.
& # 39; The new @FoxNews leaves millions of AWESOME people! We must look for a new News Outlet. Fox is no longer working for us! & # 39;
Trump launched a Twitter salvo on the cable news network that he liked best
The president has also been openly hostile to Shepard Smith, one of the few Fox News personalities who has reliably criticized him
Fox's senior political analyst, Brit Hume, shot back in a tweet: & # 39; Fox News is not supposed to work for you. & # 39;
Meanwhile, earlier this month, Trump destroyed Fox New & Shepard Smith for his low-score program.
Smith is one of the Fox stars who is becoming increasingly critical of the president's government.
At the time, Trump said he'd rather have & # 39; fake news CNN & # 39; would look, and suggested that he sometimes switch the channel to the far-right One America News Network.
A week later, Trump discovered all of his democratic challengers from the top of a Fox News survey. Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris all defeated him in hypothetical head-to-head matchups, an outcome that White House assistants said furiously behind the scenes the president.
Trump has several times suggested that the extreme right-wing One America News Network (OANN) is most hospitable to its supporters than Fox
