Trump showed he knew he needed free media coverage, so while attacking Fox News, he told CNN to go, “All the time with Trump.”
The former head of Truth Social wrote:
It’s interesting to watch FoxNews cover the small and unenthusiastic crowd of 139 in Staten Island for DeSantis, but stay as far away as possible from covering the thousands of people, many unable to get in, at the Club 47 event in West Palm Beach, Florida. I call FoxNews the RINO Network, and their DOWN BIG ratings accurately reflect the name. If FKE NEWS CNN is smart, which it isn’t, they’ll become conservative and “All Trump, All the Time,” as they did in 2016, and become ratings leaders.

Trump’s post is proof that he knows he won’t get the love and support from Fox News that he got in 2016 and 2020, so he’s trying to turn CNN into a pro-Trump network. Trump got billions of dollars in free media from the news networks in 2016, but by about the middle of his presidency, the cable networks stopped covering his rallies live. Even Fox News’ ratings for Trump’s live coverage plummeted, and it even stopped showing his rallies live.
Donald Trump is having trouble getting media coverage for his run in 2024. The failed former president is also struggling to raise funds.
Trump has never been able to get over 2016, and his plea to CNN to give him coverage is another harbinger that he has never been weaker.
