Following an article from The New York Times that revealed that President Donald Trump’s businesses lost $1.17 billion from 1985 to 1994, Fox & Friends quickly defended the president, claiming that the story is actually favorable to him, The Week reports.
Trump’s “favorite morning show” spoke about the article published on Tuesday.
"He's a bold businessman, which is chronicled here," said Brian Kilmeade in regards to the story. Kilmeade continued, the report should not “surprise anybody” and that Trump’s business decisions outlined in the article “make sense,” as the president and businessman wanted to “take chances.”
"And guess what? Not all of us win on everything we buy,” he added.
Fox co-host Ainsley Earnhardt went even farther, claiming that Trump’s financial history was “impressive.”
If anything, you read this and you're like, 'Wow, it's pretty impressive all the things that he's done in his life,'" she said. "It's beyond what most of us could ever achieve."
