Viewers are wondering what is going on at Fox News.
The top-rated network owns the largest audience in cable news because of a loyal bond with its audience.
But this Fox News host asked a question that showed the network made one big change.
The big news story over the weekend was President Trump canceling planned peace talks with the Taliban and Afghanistan government at Camp David.
The media huffed and puffed over the President proposing a dramatic event to signal the end of America’s longest war.
Fox News Channel’s Chris Wallace was one journalist up in arms over President Trump’s proposed peace talks.
Wallace badgered Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about President Trump’s proposed peace talks.
On this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” anchor Chris Wallace pressed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on why President Donald Trump planned to meet with Taliban leaders in the United States three days before the anniversary of 9/11.
Wallace asked, “[T]he Taliban had the deaths of thousands of Americans just three days before 9/11. No concerns about that? And I guess my question is you know, I can understand the envoy talking, but why is the president have to confer that status on them?
Pompeo said, “President Trump was very clear. He wanted to make sure we got to the right place. He has always been someone, I’ve observed is now for my entire time working for him, now as CIA director and now secretary of state — he is willing to take risks if he believes he can deliver a good outcome for the American people.”
Bad actors have been invited to Camp David on previous occasions.
The symbolism of Camp David makes it a popular location for presidents to stage high profile diplomatic talks.
This did not start with Donald Trump.
And President Trump did not start the war in Afghanistan.
The President has to negotiate with who is in front of him.
And in this case, that is the Taliban.
What the media is most enraged about is the possibility of the President delivering on a campaign promise.
