Donald Trump and Fox News have been closely intertwined for many years, with the former president appearing regularly on the network. However, there appears to have been a shift in the relationship in recent months. Four members of Trump's inner circle have claimed that Fox News has put a "soft ban" on the former president, and that he has not appeared on the network since announcing his presidential bid in November. Meanwhile, many of Trump's political rivals, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, have been regularly featured.
The news has been met with criticism from some of Trump's associates. Steve Bannon, a former White House strategist and right-wing provocateur, has spoken out against the network, claiming they are disrespecting the former president and encouraging conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. Fox News has not commented on the reports, and it remains to be seen what the future of the network's relationship with Trump will be.
