While wrapping up yet another call-in from President Donald Trump, “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy on Tuesday poured cold water on the president’s assertion that he will be dialing up the morning show “once a week, like the old days.”
“You may want to do it every week, but Fox is not committed to that,” Doocy said. “We’re going to take it on a case-by-case basis.”
“Fox & Friends” has been one of Trump’s preferred outlets during his first term, and he became a regular on the program ahead of running for president.

On the Tuesday call, Trump claimed there was some sort of agreement in place for him to be interviewed live “every Monday” going into the election, leading Doocy to pump the brakes on behalf of Fox News.
“Yeah, we’re gonna do it every week,” Trump said. “Every Monday, I think they said, and if we can’t do it on a Monday, we’ll do it on a Tuesday, like we did today.”
After Doocy gave his disclaimer, he offered Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden equal time.
“And Joe Biden, as well, is always welcome to join us for 47 minutes,” Doocy said, “like we just did with the president.”
