Pres. Trump called out Fox News reporters for not understanding the way he is negotiating the southern border wall with Democrats.
On Sunday night, Pres. Trump tweeted the following: “Never thought I’d say this but I think @johnrobertsFox and @GillianHTurner @FoxNews have even less understanding of the Wall negotiations than the folks at FAKE NEWS CNN & NBC!” Trump wrote. “Look to final results! Don’t know how my poll numbers are so good, especially up 19% with Hispanics?”

Gillian Turner, Fox News correspondent, joined John Roberts who filled in for regular Chris Wallace’s Sunday morning program. It seems that Pres. Trump didn’t like the way the panel discussion on Fox News was going as it was debating the winners and losers of the shutdown fight.
At one point in the conversation, Turner claimed the president “fell on his sword on the wall issue.”
I understand that Pres. Trump wants to build the wall, and all of his base wants that to happen. Many of us were disappointed with the optics of Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer being able to claim victory as they got everything they were asking for and Pres. Trump giving them three more weeks.
As you know, Pres. Trump has been bending backward for the Democrats and Republicans halfway through his first year in office, signing that bastard Omnibus bill for over a trillion dollars, knowing full well he was against it. Then they pressed into signing another one. There was another time when Sen. Mitch McConnell allowed the Senate to pass legislation prohibiting Pres. Trump from waiving sanctions on Russia while they went on recess (August 2017).
Pres. Trump is a proud man, and I understand why he does the things he does, but he also has to realize the optics especially with campaign season coming up. The only thing that matters is a viewable success or negative optics. Either can doom you or smother you without giving you a chance to recover.
