Trump plugs Fox News and a blank book, trashes 'fake media'

President Trump tweeted an approximation of a quote from author Michael J. Knowles, who was interviewed Monday morning on Fox News' "Fox & Friends."

Knowles, who is also described as a contributor to the conservative blog the Daily Wire, appeared on the show to promote his book, "Reasons to Vote for Democrats."

After a brief exchange of banter, anchor Brian Kilmeade asked him, "Do you think, when it comes to foreign policy, the last eight years are being exposed right now?"

Knowles replied: "It is unbelievable how, within the first hundred days of this presidency, we have exposed the total failure of the last eight years of foreign policy." He didn't elaborate further and offered no evidence to back up his statement.

Trump then plugged Knowles' book.

Other than a table of contents, the book has no words. It consists of about 260 blank pages.

Trump finished with a shot at the media.

It's unclear which outlet or outlets raised his ire, though it appears that Fox News was not among them.
