In a string of tweets and retweets on Monday evening, Donald Trump made it clear that he was preoccupied by comments made earlier in the day by Fox News Channel host Neil Cavuto.
After Trump boasted that he had been taking an unproven treatment for the coronavirus, Cavuto warned his viewers of the potential health risks.
Among the numerous posts the president dedicated to berating a member of the free press was one tweet by John Nolte of the alt-right news site Breitbart.
“Cavuto’s losing to CNN,” Nolte wrote in the post shared with Trump’s nearly 80 million followers. “Can’t imagine why. What an asshole.”
