Trump to Make First Appearance on Fox News in Six Months in Exclusive Interview with Hannity

Former President Donald Trump is set to appear on Fox News for an exclusive interview with Sean Hannity on Monday, marking his first appearance on the network in six months.[0] The interview will take place at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida, and comes at a time when tensions between the former president and the top-watched cable news channel are high.[1] Trump has been attacking Fox News relentlessly over its coverage of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is widely expected to challenge him for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.[0] In one recent social media post, Trump called the network a “RINO” (Republican in Name Only) network.

Hannity, who is a long-time personal friend of Trump, remains staunchly supportive of the former president, who is reportedly facing indictment in New York in connection with a hush money payment made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in 2016.[0] The interview with Trump also comes as Hannity and several other top hosts at Fox are dealing with bad publicity, as the network fights a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems stemming from what the company alleges was Fox’s airing of Trump’s false claims of voter fraud after the 2020 election.[0]

Despite the tensions between Trump and Fox News, his appearance on the network is significant, given its status as the top-watched cable news channel. The interview with Hannity will be conducted in person, and it is likely that the former president will use the platform to further his political agenda and message to his supporters. Trump’s return to Fox’s airwaves is also noteworthy, given that it will be his first appearance on the network since he announced another bid for the White House last November.[0]

Fox News has moved to have the defamation lawsuit brought by Dominion dismissed on First Amendment grounds, accusing the company of cherry-picking text messages and depositions from top hosts to build a stronger case.[0] Despite the legal battles facing the network, it remains a powerful force in American politics and media, with a loyal following among conservative viewers. Trump’s appearance on Fox News is likely to draw significant attention and could have implications for the future of both the former president and the cable news channel.
