Trump Marketing campaign Slams Fox Information Director, Arizona Calling Biden: “A Clinton-Voting, Biden-Donating Democrat”

The anger at Team Trump’s Fox News subsided when the president’s campaign issued a statement calling the network’s decision desk director Arnon Mishkin a “Clinton-Voting, Biden-Donating Democrat”.

The Trump campaign has been buoyant since the Arizona network – many believe prematurely – called for Democrat Joe Biden on election night.

It was a call the New York Times would later admit, “a bold call that instantly changed the tone of the night.”

In a statement emailed to the media, the Trump campaign stated, “A Democrat put his finger on the scales and declared Joe Biden the winner before the votes were counted.”

That agent is apparently Mishkin.

What Fox News did to the Trump campaign is reprehensible

The president’s team has tried again and again to pressure Fox News to cancel their call, to no avail.

Several other media outlets refused to include Arizona in the Biden earnings column almost two days later.

“Five major electoral organizations have refused to follow Mishkin’s lead and call the race in Arizona,” the campaign said.

Fox News’ Director of the Election Bureau, Arnon Mishkin, voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and donated to Obama / Biden in 2008.

Mishkin was adamant in defending his decision, as was Fox News Political Editor Chris Stirewalt.

“The president will not be able to take and win enough votes to remove the seven point lead that the former vice-president has,” said Mishkin. “I’m sorry … we’re not wrong on this particular case.”

Stirewalt added, “The reality is that the margins are too high, we feel very safe or we wouldn’t have made it.”

And now you have Tucker Carlson openly pushing back Fox News and calling Arizona for Biden.

Were you right?

But the margins weren’t too significant, as demonstrated by other networks that refused to follow Fox’s lead.

The Republic of Arizona reports: “Trump got almost exactly what he would have to pay back to win Arizona’s 11 votes and possibly re-election.”

While the News Herald in Arizona said, “Arizona [is] still in play. “

The Arizona News Herald knows …

The Trump campaign did a little digging and revealed some information that could suggest Mishkin had nothing to do with a supposedly neutral election reporting team at all.

“Mishkin is a registered Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, worked as a Democratic political advisor, and has long made donations to Democrats, including the 2008 Obama Biden Campaign,” they wrote.

Ironically, they refer to an article in the New York Times that described Mishkin as a “nerd” who “could stop [President Trump]. ”

Mishkin might have made it.
