Donald Trump Jr., perhaps the most vocal of the Trump family after the former president, is speaking out against Fox News for no longer welcoming him on the network.

Trump Jr. made this claim on the conservative Steak for Breakfast podcast.

“I used to be on Fox three, four, five, six, 10 times a week. I haven’t been on in nine months,” Trump Jr. said.

This comment comes at a time of growing animosity between former President Donald Trump and the news organization after they agreed to pay a $787 million settlement to Dominion Voting Systems after promoting false claims of interference in the 2020 election.

Last week, Fox News’ most popular host Tucker Carlson was abruptly fired after text messages revealed racist and sexism language.

Despite Carlson’s public support of Trump and election interference claims, private texts from the former anchor showed him speaking negatively about Trump, even writing “I hate him passionately.” The firing and lawsuit settlement appears to show a shift in how the conservative news organization wants to be seen by the public.

Even Trump Jr. himself observed Fox is looking to change gears. He noted that Fox is moving away from his father’s “America First” movement and that firing Carlson “changes things permanently.”
