Fox News' Chris Wallace Criticizes Trump For Commenting On Paul Manafort Trial




 

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace was asked by fellow anchor Sandra Smith on Friday what he thought about President Donald Trump's comments on the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

"I think the whole Manafort trial is very sad," Trump told reporters before boarding Marine One on Friday. "I think it's a very sad day for our country. ... And I think it's very sad what they've done to Paul Manafort."

So ... very sad then?

"We really have changed. I'm not sure it's for the better," Wallace said in regard to presidents commenting on ongoing trials.

"I remember Barack Obama weighing in on Trayvon Martin or Henry Louis Gates in Cambridge, weighing in on those, and people went nuts," he said.

Wallace pointed out that Trump went so far as to say "it's sad" Manafort was prosecuted at all.

Jury deliberations in Manafort's trial continued for a second day Friday, with jurors leaving for the weekend without returning a verdict. The former Trump campaign chairman faces 18 criminal counts, including tax evasion and bank fraud.

U.S. President Donald Trump pressed fellow Republicans in Congress on Thursday to "get tough" and push to fund his proposed border wall in the current spending bill, raising the specter of a government shutdown when funding lapses later this month. In a post on Twitter, Trump called the bill "ridiculous" for not including funds for a planned wall along the U.S. border with Mexico, and blamed Democrats for blocking it in the plan passed by the Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday. The Senate-approved massive spending package included a provision to fund the federal government through Dec. 7 in an effort to avoid a government shutdown when funding ends Sept. 30.
