They don’t. The Trumpism that is on FAUX News is merely raw meat being thrown to the Republican “base” (i.e. useful idiots for the right-wing of the ruling class). FOX is the voice of the neocons. To a person, they hate Trump in what is a major heel vs. heel match.

Republican Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley on Saturday questioned if Fox News even wants to see Donald Trump get re-elected in November, criticizing a Friday town hall interview the president did with host Sean Hannity.
Grassley echoed one of Trump’s frequent criticisms against Fox News by asking if the cable news network has any loyalty to the president. The Iowa GOP senator’s challenge comes hours after Trump and his longtime supporter, Hannity, conducted an interview taped Friday in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
The senator particularly complained that Hannity allowed Trump to “digress,” which prevented him from touting his efforts to stack the U.S. Supreme Court with conservative justices.
“Does FOXNews want Trump Re-elected? Watched Hannity/Trump interview/KEY QUESTION “What goals in next term?Trump starts answer/gets off point and Hannity helps digress and that’s end of the most important Q to get FOUR MORE YEARS OF DRAINING THE SWAMP &Justices,” Grassley tweeted Saturday morning.
Newsweek reached out to both the White House and Grassley’s Washington office for additional remarks Saturday morning.
