President Donald Trump took to Twitter Sunday expressing his frustration with Fox News for the third weekend in a row, saying that they are trying to “become politically correct” and demanded an “alternative now”.

Last Sunday, the president took a swipe at the cable network and host Chris Wallace, tweeting they are “on a bad path” after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appeared on “Fox News Sunday”. On Easter Sunday, he slammed “wannabe” Chris Wallace and Fox News, wondering “what the hell is happening” to the network? “It’s a whole new ballgame over there!” he wrote.

“FoxNews just doesn’t get what’s happening! They are being fed Democrat talking points, and they play them without hesitation or research. They forgot that Fake News @CNN & MSDNC wouldn’t let @FoxNews participate, even a little bit, in the poor ratings Democrat Debates,” the president tweeted this Sunday.

Last March, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) said it would not permit Fox News to host a presidential primary debate, alleging ties between the conservative network and President Trump’s inner circle.

In a statement, DNC Chairman Tom Perez said had said: “Recent reporting in The New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and FOX News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, FOX News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.”

The President went on to say: “Even the Radical Left Do Nothing Democrats laughed at the Fox suggestion. No respect for the people running @FoxNews. But Fox keeps on plugging to try and become politically correct. They put RINO Paul Ryan on their Board.” Continued Below

President Trump then pointed out that Fox News hired Donna Brazile, and took another jab at Chris Wallace.

“They hire ‘debate questions to Crooked Hillary’ fraud @donnabrazile (and others who are even worse). Chris Wallace is nastier to Republicans than even Deface the Nation or Sleepy Eyes,” he wrote, referring to Chuck Todd who hosts NBC’s “Meet the Press”, and Moderator Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation”.

“The people who are watching @FoxNews, in record numbers (thank you President Trump), are angry. They want an alternative now. So do I!” he demanded. Continued Below

It is not specifically clear what the president may have watched on Fox News on Sunday, however, two weeks ago, the president had tweeted: “Watching @FoxNews on weekend afternoons is a total waste of time. We now have some great alternatives, like @OANN”.
