Fox News host: Trump claiming Mexico is paying for wall 'makes zero sense'

https://thehill.com/homenews/media/423529-fox-news-host-trump-claiming-mexico-is-paying-for-wall-makes-zero-sense

Fox News host Dagen McDowell ripped President Trump on Wednesday, saying his claim that Mexico would pay for a border wall through a new trade deal with the U.S. “makes zero sense”.

“I want to know why in the name of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy are you talking about Mexico is paying for it?” McDowell said on Fox News’s “Outnumbered” on Wednesday.
“Well then why did you shut the government down?
In terms of the political messaging, this makes zero sense to me.”

Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to claim that Mexico would be paying for the border wall through the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which was signed in November but has yet to be ratified by Congress.

2. Fox is losing viewers by defending him

Hannity has lost 20% of his audience since the midterms.

Fox isn’t going to continue blindly supporting Trump if they continue to lose viewers.

They need ad revenue. Lower ratings cost them money.

5. I'm still waiting to hear someone on MSNBC or CNN

call bullshit on this total lie that the "USMCA is Mexico paying for the wall".

I'm about to the point that I can't turn MSNBC on until after 8 pm EST.
