Donald Trump Rips ‘Pathetic, Nasty And Wrong’ Juan Williams For Calling Him ‘Brutish’
On Sunday afternoon, President Donald Trump lashed out at Fox News political analyst Juan Williams, calling him “pathetic,” “nasty” and “wrong.”
“Juan Williams at @FoxNews is so pathetic, and yet when he met me in the Fox Building lobby, he couldn’t have been nicer as he asked me to take a picture of him and me for his family,” the president tweeted.
“Yet he is always nasty and wrong!”
Trump’s tweet came less than an hour after Williams called Trump’s approach to China on trade “brutish” during a Fox News Sunday panel that re-aired at 2 pm ET.
“It’s not just Democrats who say, ‘Hey, this guy is inartful.’ The Wall Street Journal” has said that'” Williams said.
“But I think that what you see here is that Trump’s unpredictability, Dana, then risks global recession, and you can do that. I mean, clearly, unpredictability is something that really scares Wall Street, because it depresses the likelihood of capital investment, which is necessary for stock growth.”
Trump, a devoted fan of Fox News, has increasingly criticized the right-wing network over what he sees as “negative coverage,” particularly when the network chooses to air polls showing him losing Democratic candidates.
