Off the air: Trump boycotts Fox News over campaign coverage

NEW YORK (AP) – Donald Trump says he’s done appearing on Fox News shows for the “foreseeable future” because he doesn’t like the network’s coverage of his presidential campaign.

The billionaire businessman and leading Republican candidate tweets that Fox News has been treating him “very unfairly” and that he’s going to stop appearing on its shows.

Trump has been feuding with the network since first GOP primary debate, when he objected to the moderators’ questions.

There was a brief detente. But the feud escalated this week, with Trump tweeting and retweeting complaints about the network and hosts, including Megyn Kelly.

Trump has become a constant presence on cable news shows and often phones in to share his thoughts.

A Fox spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
