No big surprise here, but Fox News will wrap up 2018 with an exclusive interview with POTUS Donald Trump.
It will air as part of Fox News Channel’s All-American New Year, co-hosted by Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery and Pete Hegseth tonight live from Times Square in New York City. According to FNC, Trump will discuss the government shutdown and reveal his New Year’s resolutions for 2019, with what he hopes to accomplish in the coming year.
FNC’s Griff Jenkins and Carley Shimkus will kick off the festivities at 8 PM ET with a two-hour special, Countdown to All-American New Year before Kennedy and Hegseth take over at 10 PM ET.
The exact time of the interview is not known, but it’s a pretty good guess, given Trump’s latest overnight tweetstorm, where his focus will be, again blaming Democrats for the continuing stalemate.
“I campaigned on Border Security, which you cannot have without a strong and powerful Wall. Our Southern Border has long been an “Open Wound,” where drugs, criminals (including human traffickers) and illegals would pour into our Country. Dems should get back here an fix now!,” he tweeted early this morning.
He then segued to his recurrent attack on the “Fake News” media.
“I am the only person in America who could say that, “I’m bringing our great troops back home, with victory,” and get BAD press,” he tweeted. “It is Fake News and Pundits who have FAILED for years that are doing the complaining. If I stayed in Endless Wars forever, they would still be unhappy!”
Then it’s back to “the Wall.”
“I’m in the Oval Office. Democrats, come back from vacation now and give us the votes necessary for Border Security, including the Wall. You voted yes in 2006 and 2013. One more yes, but with me in office, I’ll get it built, and Fast!”
and he doubled down on his defense of “the Wall.”
“It’s incredible how Democrats can all use their ridiculous sound bite and say that a Wall doesn’t work. It does, and properly built, almost 100%! They say it’s old technology – but so is the wheel. They now say it is immoral- but it is far more immoral for people to be dying!”
“President and Mrs. Obama built/has a ten foot Wall around their D.C. mansion/compound. I agree, totally necessary for their safety and security. The U.S. needs the same thing, slightly larger version!”
