Fox News’ Chris Wallace Trashes Trump – Viewers Revolt

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace infuriated pro-Donald Trump network viewers by criticizing the president. Wallace complained that the president was attempting to tell American companies how to run their businesses, saying, “We have a free-market capitalist system.”

Wallace said on America’s Newsroom, “The best I can tell, the American president can’t order U.S. Companies how they’re going to do their sales and where they’re going to have their supply chains. We have a free-market capitalist system. I don’t think the president can order a car company to move some of its factories from one place to another.”

The anchor’s comments were in response to a tweet by the president, in which he “hereby ordered” companies to look for an alternative to doing business in China–after the nation increased its tariffs on the United States.

Wallace said, “He could impose tariffs or make it economically untenable, but can’t sit there and order the CEO or the board and my guess is most people in this country wouldn’t want to see a president be able to do this.”

But the Fox News anchor wasn’t done. He also doled out harsh words for the president for attacking Jerome Powell, his own Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

“When you have the president of the United States sort of flailing around this way and ordering companies to move back to the U.S. And saying that the head of the Federal Reserve is the enemy of the country, is that going to create more consumer confidence about the state of the economy or not?” Wallace asked.

Fox News viewers, who tend to be pro-Trump, have grown increasingly annoyed with Wallace and the network’s other anti-Trump anchors like Shep Smith. After Wallace was critical of the president on Friday, many Fox viewers took to Twitter to let their thoughts be known.
