Since becoming president, Donald Trump has not given an interview to CNN—and based on remarks he made Thursday, it sounds like he has no plans for that to change. "They are begging me to do an interview, and I just think it would be disloyal to my followers," said Trump, who had called into Brian Kilmeade's Fox News Radio show, per the Hill. "I think it would be very disloyal to people that are Trump fans and people that voted for me and people that are going to vote again." Fox News has more on the interview, in which Trump also discussed the US-China trade war and a US troop drawdown in Afghanistan. (Trump also slammed MSNBC Thursday.)
