In an interview Wednesday with Fox News Channel host Bill O’Reilly, the anchor asked Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump “do you think CNN dislikes you, the news organization itself?”
Trump’s response, which resulted in a cheer from a crowd assembled in an airplane hangar to hear the GOP candidate, was blunt: “I get better press from CNN than I do from Fox, Bill.”
O’Reilly suggested that was because Fox News was “tougher,” but Trump insisted “I get covered better by CNN than by Fox.”
O’Reilly also accused Trump of being “too thin-skinned” and suggested the candidate save his barbs on Twitter for more serious topics. “Tweet about Putin, tweet about ISIS.” The exchange follows Trump’s pre-debate Twitter comments about Fox News Channel host Megyn Kelly, who Trump has famously targeted.
