Fox News Cuts Away From Trump’s 9/11 Visit After He Says Election Was Rigged ‘Which It Was Not’

As part of Fox News Channel’s coverage of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the U.S., the network aired former President Donald Trump’s visit to an NYPD police precinct in Manhattan, which featured Mr. Trump pivoting from reflecting on the terror and heroism of that day 20 years ago to his unhappiness over losing the 2020 presidential election.

“We’re going to break away now,” said FNC anchor Arthel Neville, saying of Mr. Trump “he did not miss any opportunities to air grievances including claiming that the election was rigged, which is was not,” Neville said. “It has been proven in court multiple times. It has been proven that the election was not rigged by elected election officials.”

As former presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush attended formal 9/11 ceremonies—Obama and Clinton alongside President Biden at the World Trade Center site, while Mr. Bush spoke at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania—Mr. Trump’s appearances included providing live commentary at a boxing match in Hollywood, Florida.

Appearing at the 17 Precinct in midtown Manhattan, Mr. Trump also happily bashed President Biden’s Afghanistan exit and took shots at the news media, pointing out the “fake news” in attendance to cover the story. Trump was asked if he would run again and he said “that’s a tough question. Actually for me it’s an easy question. I mean I know what I’m going to do…I think you are going to be happy, let me put it that way. I think you are going to be very happy.”
