As the case of Donald Trump vs. Fox News Channel continues to play out in the open, both sides will meet next week to try and hammer out their differences. This from a Fox News spokesperson:

“Fox News Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes and Donald Trump spoke this morning and plan to have a meeting next week to discuss their differences of opinion regarding Fox’s coverage of Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

FOX News has held every candidate in this race to the highest journalistic standards throughout our coverage. We believe a candid meeting about our differences is required and that any misunderstandings can be handled without compromising those standards.”

We go to Yankee games and Knick games and sometimes Giant games, and he is a guy that wants people to like him, alright? But you don’t run for president if you want people to like you. Because there’s going to be a significant part of the country that hates you, because you are running against what they believe. But the worst thing that ever happened in Donald Trump’s life was he learned how to tweet. That was the worst thing. What should happen is the people who love and cherish Donald Trump should, after 9:00 at night, handcuff him. So he can’t do that.”

In fact, it was after 9 p.m. last night that Trump tweeted this:
