Fox News host Chris Wallace on Thursday slammed the Democratic National Committee's decision to bar his network from hosting Democratic presidential primary debates.
"You know how we talk about Trump derangement syndrome or Obama? I think that the left wing of the Democratic Party there is Fox derangement syndrome," Wallace said during an appearance on Brian Kilmeade's radio show.
"And even though they know that Martha MacCallum and Bret Baier and I would give a fair debate, the idea of anything with Fox News presents the Democratic debate and they were just looking for an excuse and The New Yorker article gave it to them."
Wallace also said he would have done a responsible, fair job "with tough questions" and cited Fox News' viewership as a reason to have the network host a debate.
"We had 24 million people" in 2015, he said, adding that by the fall of 2020, "the Democrats are going to be begging to do debates with Donald Trump."
Trump on Wednesday tweeted he would "do the same thing with the Fake News Networks and the Radical Left Democrats in the General Election debates!" following the DNC's announcement.
