President Trump fires back at new target: ESPN, after a controversial tweet by one of its anchors.
FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:
Days after ESPN anchor Jemele Hill tweeted said that "Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists." President Trump fired back on Twitter:
ESPN is paying a really big price for its politics (and bad programming). People are dumping it in RECORD numbers. Apologize for untruth!

Meanwhile, White House Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she stands by her comment that the tweet is a fireable offense:
(Sanders) "ESPN has been hypocritical. They should hold anchors to a fair and consistent standard. ESPN suspended a long-time anchor Linda Cohn, not too long ago, for expressing a political viewpoint."
So far ESPN anchor Jemele Hill has apologized to the network, but not to the President.
At the White House, Jon Decker, FOX News.
