Trump waged a fresh war against the network amid rumors that DeSantis will be next to announce his bid for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination after his state's legislative session concludes in May.

"FoxNews is promoting Ron DeSanctus so hard and so much that there's not much time left for Real News," wrote Trump in a post shared on February 27, having previously slammed Fox as a "RINO" network, a term meaning "Republican In Name Only."

Trump said it reminded him of 2016 when the network was "pushing" Jeb Bush.

"The new Fox Poll, which have always been purposely terrible for me, has 'TRUMP Crushing DeSanctimonious,' but they barely show it. Instead they go with losers like Karl Rove, Paul Ryan and now, even 'Yesper,' who have been wrong about everything!"

He doubled down on his stance while concluding, "Isn't there a big, beautiful, network which wants to do well, and make a fortune besides? FAKE NEWS!"

Amid his recent claims against DeSantis, Trump previously spoke out to deny a New York Times report claiming he dubbed the Florida governor "Meatball Ron."

"All of the Fake News is reporting that I spend large amounts of my time coming up with a good 'nickname' for Ron DeSanctimonious, who is obviously going to give the presidential 'thing' a shot," Trump wrote. "They are all 100% wrong, I don't even think about it," #45 continued. "A very unimportant subject to me!!!"
