Donald Trump was clearly miffed over Fox News’ portrayal of him.
The former president complained that the network’s morning show used a big ‘orange’ photo of him.
In response, Trump once again flirted with skipping the first GOP primary debate.

Former President Donald Trump on Thursday railed against Fox News for using “the absolutely worst pictures” of him including one where he appears orange with “my chin pulled way back.”

“Why doesn’t Fox and Friends show all of the Polls where I am beating Biden, by a lot,” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth. “They just won’t do it! Also, they purposely show the absolutely worst pictures of me, especially the big ‘orange’ one with my chin pulled way back.”

Trump’s threat is about more than just his own vanity. In the same message, he once again flirted with skipping the first GOP presidential primary debate that Fox is hosting in less than a week.

“Just like 2016 all over again…And then they want me to debate!” he wrote.

It’s not immediately clear what photo miffed Trump so clearly. Fox and Friends discussed the former president at length during their Thursday morning show.

Journalist Aaron Rupar suggested it could be this one:

A spokesperson for Fox did not immediately respond to a request for comment. This isn’t the first time the image-conscious Trump has complained about how Fox portrays him. 

Fox News anchor Brett Baier, who will be moderating the debate alongside fellow network host Martha MacCallum, told Politico that even if the former president doesn’t show up in Milwaukee his presence will still be felt.

“If he’s not there, he’ll still be there,” Baier said. “In other words, he’ll be a part of questioning. There may be sound bites, there may be elements where ‘this is what the leader of the primary says about this issue.’ He’ll be there, even if he’s not there.”
