Donald Trump’s war on Fox News is apparently over. Again.
The network just announced that Trump will appear on “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, despite having declared he’s boycotting Fox News for the “foreseeable future.”
In Trump speak, that apparently means five days, since he tweeted on Wednesday: “I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future.”
But the network quickly fired back saying it was Fox that dumped Trump first, calling his boycott “stale and tiresome.”
“When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country,” a spokesperson for the network said in a statement.
A day later Fox announced its chairman Roger Ailes would meet with Trump and network senior execs to smooth out the network’s differences with the GOP presidential frontrunner.
Whatever Ailes said must have worked because all is apparently well again in Fox-Trump land.
