Many people erupted in anger on Twitter after former President Donald Trump spoke with Dan Bongino on Fox News. There were claims that Fox News edited out election fraud claims in the interview. Liz Harrington, a spokeswoman for Donald Trump tweeted this:
“WOW. So I went to post a clip from President Trump’s great interview from @FoxNews last night, and lo and behold, Fox News EDITED and CHANGED what President Trump said, censoring out 45 accurately describing the Fake Election. Here is what President Trump said:”

Jenna Ellis went to bat for Bongino:
“I’ve known Dan Bongino for years. He is 100% a conservative and against censorship. I just spoke with him and he’s going to find out exactly what happened with the Fox YouTube clip. Dan is one of the FEW that is principled above anything else. He has my full respect and support.”

Dan is one of the FEW that is principled above anything else. He has my full respect and support.
Bongino claims he wasn’t contacted before Harrington’s tweet:
Business Insider reported on the debacle in part:
The ex-president has continuously made baseless claims following the 2020 election that it was rigged against him. Trump and his allies had filed dozens of lawsuits to challenge or overturn the election results, but all failed.
“This is just as bad as Big Tech. They are putting President Trump’s honest statement, and the concerns of tens of millions of Americans, down the Memory Hole,” Harrington continued.
Trump gave the interview Saturday night to Fox’s Dan Bongino. In a video of the interview shared to YouTube, a jump cut can be heard in Trump’s interview.
Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment by Insider.
Fox News may be afraid to air certain things as they are already being sued by Dominion for defamation, also according to Business Insider.
It remains to be seen what the end result of this confusion will be. We know Donald Trump puts out statements and will likely have something to say one way or another. If he has already put out a statement on this, we have not seen it yet.
