Interview: Trump antagonizing conservative media

George Ajjan, an international political strategist, told Newsweek that Trump's attacks on Fox News could result in negative consequences for his 2024 presidential campaign. "When Trump was at the pinnacle of his power, he commanded near-universal loyalty on the political right and used the specter of questioning fealty to great effect," Ajjan said. "But the circumstances have dramatically changed and Trump has been met with growing resistance from a chorus of Republicans, even those formerly solidly behind him, who crave a forward-looking approach that will usher in victory once again." Ajjan continued, "His efforts to re-litigate the 2020 election have fallen on increasingly deaf ears and antagonizing potential kingmakers at Fox News would seem more like self-sabotage than the substance of a viable candidacy."
