Trump vs. Fox News: Who fired whom first?
Trump is refusing to appear on Fox News after he was slated by National Review Editor Rich Lowry.
JOHANNESBURG - US Presidential candidate Donald Trump has told CNN he doesn't mind being criticised, but when people get things wrong, he will correct them.
Trump is refusing to appear on the Fox News channel after he was slated by National Review Editor Rich Lowry over his performance at last week's Republican presidential debate.
Shortly after noon, the Republican candidate tweeted to his followers:
. @FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won't be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future.

A furious Trump took to Twitter last night, saying that Lowry should be fined for his comments and apologise.

Trump said he will speak out when he feels he's being targeted unfairly.
"If I do something wrong… I have very thick skin, I don't mind being criticised. I'll never ever complain because I know when I do something wrong. I am a smart person. I mean I do things wrong and when I do, I don't mind they can come at me fifteen different ways."
His relationship has long been strained with the network, which attracts a lot of Republican viewers.
Earlier this year, he came under fire first for his attack on Fox anchor Megyn Kelly for the questions she posed to him during her moderation of the first Republican debate. ("You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes," he told CNN. "Blood coming out of her wherever.") and then for a string of tweets that again lambasted Kelly.
