Here he goes again! In the early morning on Monday, April 17, Donald Trump hit back at Fox News as the media company is being sued by Dominion Voting Systems, which sells voting machines, for allegedly spreading lies about the 2020 election.

The 76-year-old claimed "THERE IS SOOO MUCH PROOF” that the election was rigged, sharing the debunked allegations of "ballot stuffing" and FBI collusion with Twitter.

“IF FOX WOULD FINALLY ADMIT THAT THERE WAS LARGE SCALE CHEATING & IRREGULARITIES IN THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, WHICH WOULD BE A GOOD THING FOR THEM, & FOR AMERICA, THE CASE AGAINST THEM, WHICH SHOULD NOT HAVE EXISTED AT ALL, WOULD BE GREATLY WEAKENED,” Trump exclaimed. “BACK UP THOSE PATRIOTS AT FOX INSTEAD OF THROWING THEM UNDER THE BUS - & THEY ARE RIGHT!”

In the email, which was between Rupert, his son Lachlan Murdoch, who is the CEO of Fox Corporation and Paul Ryan, a board member at Fox Corporation, acknowledged that "some high percentage of Americans" believed Joe Biden didn't actually win the race due to the right-wing media spreading lies.

"Thanks Paul. Wake-up call for Hannity, who has been privately disgusted by Trump for weeks, but was scared to lose viewers," Rupert replied.

Ryan advised Rupert and its hosts, including Hannity, Carlson and Laura Ingraham, to attempt to "put down the echoes of falsehood from our side."

"I truly hope our contributors, along with Tucker, Laura, and Sean get that and execute," Ryan stated of the anchors.
