Donald Trump Ends Fox News Boycott with Bill O’Reilly Interview

Donald Trump’s boycott of Fox News is over after five days, with the Republican presidential candidate scheduled to visit ‘The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday, Variety has confirmed.

On Sept. 23, Trump tweeted, “@FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future.”

Trump’s declaration came after Fox News canceled Trump’s scheduled appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” last week. In a statement at the time, the network said of Trump, “When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country.”

Trump and the network have been trading barbs since the politician launched his presidential bid in June. According to a statement from Fox News, Trump is scheduled to meet with chairman and CEO Roger Ailes this week to “discuss their differences of opinion regarding Fox’s coverage of Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign. Ailes will be joined by senior Fox editorial executives. Mr. Trump believes he has been treated unfairly in certain instances, 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.”

The news was first reported by the New York Times.
