Fox News and Donald Trump might have had a rough and tumble relationship over the past several months, but that did not stop them from booking him on Hannity for the full hour tonight.
As reported by Deadline, Donald Trump will be going on Hannity for the full hour tonight, on the eve of the Nevada Republican Presidential primary.
That may be a sticking point for other GOP candidates, who have the right to challenge Fox News due to the FCCs fair time rule for political advertising. But that also means that they will have to do so without the help of it being the night before a major primary election that will be used to decide the future GOP candidate to run for the highest office in the land.

Donald Trump has been on a whirlwind of media outlets ever since his campaign kicked off late summer last year. He has taken several jabs at various GOP politicians, Democratic politicians and media personalities as well.
As a matter of fact, it has been well documented over the past several months the feud between Trump and the host of The Kelly File, Megyn Kelly. Although that feud has been mostly one-sided, given that Kelly has never really responded to Trump’s public insults of her. He even made a scathing comment about her being on her period during the first GOP debate on Fox News, which was when she asked him about his notorious habit of making misogynistic comments on social media as well as traditional media.
But just like with any other network, Fox News is always looking for the biggest ratings, and if there is one thing that Donald Trump is really good at, that’s pulling in a large TV audience.
He will appear tonight on Hannity with host Sean Hannity. He has been officially booked for the full hour, so there is no doubt that he will be using the show as a pulpit to drive down his opponents in the GOP race and further his own agenda while seeking the nomination.
New Gingrich also went on Fox News to talk about how they were instrumental to Trump’s rise to prominence in the GOP race for the nomination. This is something that is not heard very often on one of Fox News’ own shows, but Gingrich made a few blistering comments about how Fox & Friends made Donald Trump the GOP frontrunner in the 2016 primary race. He also did this one their very own show.
According to Media Matters For America, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade tried to shake off Gingrich’s criticism and said “I want to be a billionaire,” as if to change the subject.
What is for sure is that Donald Trump is clearly the frontrunner and there is little to no doubt hat he is going to maintain that status all the way through the primary season and likely pick up the GOP nomination before November.
But what really is a sticking point with both the GOP as well as with Democrats is that Trump has made statements that clearly show he is willing to do anything to win over the vote. Those statements also seemed to pander to a demographic of people that are not classified by age, but rather by ideology.

Donald Trump’s statements and claims across the board have been controversial, to say the least, but have also garnered criticism from domestic and foreign politicians alike. As a matter of fact, the United Kingdom took up a session in Parliament to discuss whether or not they will allow Donald Trump to enter their country.
