Former President Donald Trump blasted Fox News on Sunday, claiming the network “continually allow[s] horrible and untruthful anti-Trump commercials to be run.”

“What good is it if FOX News speaks well of me when they continually allow horrible and untruthful anti-Trump commercials to be run—and plenty of them,” Trump said in a statement. “In the good old days, that would never have happened and today it happens all of the time.”

He went on to complain about the “forces” working against him.

“Ratings-challenged CNN and MSNBC would never run a positive Trump ad—never,” he said. “With so many forces against us, Big Tech, the Fake News Media, the Radical Left, the RINOs, and more, we are at such a disadvantage, but we will win anyway!”

In February, POLITICO reported that the anti-Trump Republican Accountability Project, would air ads on Fox News in favor of GOP lawmakers who impeached Trump and defeat his most loyal backers in office. Other anti-Trump groups have bought airtime on specific local Fox News markets with the stated purpose of provoking a reaction from the former president.

And MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell complained over the summer that Fox News would not air a commercial promoting his three-day “cyber symposium” about how the election was rigged (it was not). He temporarily suspended MyPillow advertising as a result, but as of late September, the pillow company’s ads are back on the network.

Mediaite was unable to determine what specific ad may have triggered Trump’s complaint, so it is not possible to ascertain how “untruthful” or “anti-Trump” the ad may have been.
