President Trump’s family feud with Fox News is heating up.

The press-bashing president urged his supporters Wednesday to stop watching Fox News and claimed the typically loyal conservative network “isn’t working for us anymore!"

“The New Fox News is letting millions of GREAT people down! We have to start looking for a new News Outlet. Fox isn’t working for us anymore!” the president posted as part of a string of tweets.

Trump’s Fox News rebuke came after he grew upset while watching the daytime anchor Sandra Smith’s recent interview with Democratic National Committee official Xochitl Hinojosa.

“Just watched Fox News heavily promoting the Democrats through their DNC Communications Director, spewing out whatever she wanted with zero pushback by anchor, @SandraSmithFox,” Trump tweeted.

The president appeared to acknowledge that the typically Trump-boosting news organization had a big hand in helping him win in 2016.

“HOPELESS & CLUELESS! They should go all the way LEFT and I will still find a way to Win — That’s what I do, Win. Too bad!” Trump posted.

A Fox News spokeswoman did not return a request for comment.

But Fox News political contributor Guy Benson pushed back against the president.

“We don’t work for you,” Benson fired at Trump’s Twitterstorm.

Trump has grown increasingly angry with Fox News in the past few weeks as some of the network’s anchors, including Shep Smith and Chris Wallace, have scrutinized some of his controversial policies and fact-checked his misleading statements on-air.

The network’s prime-time lineup remains loyal to the president, though, with right-wing hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson reliably putting a Trumpian spin on news stories.
