Donald Trump rips into two Fox News reporters saying they are worse than 'Fake News CNN and NBC'

Two Fox News reporters have gotten on the bad side of President Donald Trump. He took to Twitter to let the world know exactly how he feels.

Trump expressed harsh words towards two reporters who work on what is considered his favorite news outlet: Fox News. The tweets are found below.

Even Trump was supposedly in disbelief at comments made by John Roberts and Gillian Turner about the border wall. We're not sure of exactly what comments the president was referring to, however.

Surrounding Trump's tweets were several others that related to the need for a border wall. 

In attacking the reporters, he said: 

“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!”

He continued:

"Look to final results! Don’t know how my poll numbers are so good, especially up 19% with Hispanics?"

Trump was referencing the Marist poll which had a 31 percent approval rating from Latinos for the president just in December. In another tweet, he also gave unsourced figures relating to the cost of illegal immigration.

Roberts stepped in to replace Chris Wallace on network's Sunday show, so his comments may have emerged at that time. Turner was also present on the program's panel. 

Turner has been working as a Fox News contributor since 2014. Prior to that, she worked under Presidents Bush and Obama within the National Security Council. 

Roberts began working with Fox at a later date in 2017. He is their Chief White House correspondent. By falling out of favor with his president, he is now in Trump's lengthy "fake news" list alongside NBC, CNN, and many more. 

In a subsequent tweet, Trump reiterated his determination to build a border wall: 

"After all that I have done for the Military, our great Veterans, Judges (99), Justices (2), Tax & Regulation Cuts, the Economy, Energy, Trade & MUCH MORE, does anybody really think I won’t build the WALL?"

He added: 

"Done more in first two years than any President! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!"

Trump is asking Democratic leaders for $5.7 billion in funding for the border wall. He shut down the government for 35 days in his determination to do so, only reopening it on Friday. 

The decision was made after 800,000 furloughed workers missed two paychecks from the shutdown. But it is only temporary. Trump said he may again shut down the government on February 15. 

Regarding an agreement between the parties, things are looking grim. On Sunday, Trump expressed doubts that he would settle for less than anything other than the $5.7 billion he initially requested. 

He also reportedly told the Wall Street Journal that government agencies have a slim chance of getting funding before an agreement was reached. 

He said: 

"I personally think it’s less than 50-50, but you have a lot of very good people on that board [of lawmakers]."

In an ironic twist, Trump's decision to reopen the government came just one day after he stated he "will not cave" in a twitter post. He did so in response to comments from Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. 

Pelosi offered Trump $5 billion for border security. As differentiated from a border wall, more security could refer to better technologies and more agents at the border.

 Trump seemingly refused to budge. He tweeted: 

"Nancy just said she 'just doesn't understand why?' Very simply, without a Wall it all doesn't work. Our country has a chance to greatly reduce Crime, Human Trafficking, Gangs and Drugs. Should have been done for decades. We will not Cave!" 

The next day, he made the announcement that the wall would reopen for three weeks. This was of course not fake news. 

Regarding Trump's attack on the Fox reporters, the news outlet has yet to address the president's accusatory tweets.
