President Donald Trump is calling on “Fox &am;” to apologize for its interview of the former Trump campaign chairman and a former Trump aide.
In an interview Sunday with Fox &.; Fox News, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump did not feel the interview “was fair.”
She told reporters at a briefing that “there’s been a lot of talk” of the interview.
“He does not feel that it was fair to ask those questions, because he’s not a politician,” she said.
Sanders said the president’s “personal feelings” have not been addressed in the interview, which was conducted by former Fox News personality Sean Hannity and produced by Fox News Channel’s chief political correspondent, Tucker Carlson.
Trump is scheduled to interview Fox News personalities on Tuesday, but his advisers are now pushing for him to speak to a group of Fox News viewers.
Sanders reiterated Trump’s view that Fox News is a “partisan, partisan organization” that is biased against him.
The White House is “not going to be a platform for that,” she told reporters.
Hannity’s show is airing its fourth episode on Sunday night.
On Monday, the White House said the interview was not “fair” to Hannity.
“The president does not believe that the interview did a disservice to President Trump,” a White House spokesperson said in a statement.
“Sean Hannity and I are going to discuss the questions that were asked and the answers that he gave,” the spokesperson said.
The interview, conducted by Hannity and former Fox contributor Kimberly Guilfoyle, included the claim that Trump and other presidents “made the United States a laughingstock” and a “laughingstock in the world” because of his comments about Mexican immigrants.
Guilfoy said during the interview that she felt Trump had “not had the kind of impact that we expected, which is what he said when he took office, and he had no effect on our country.”
I think we’ve had a very successful presidency,” Guilfinoy said.”
In the process of doing the interview I made the decision to not go on the air, and I feel that’s what the president did.
He made a very good decision.
