The interview, which lasted over 40 minutes, included a great deal of media criticism from the president.
“The Washington Post, The New York Times received Pulitzers for their quote ‘coverage of the Russian probe,'” Hannity noted. “You’ve seen the coverage over two-plus years. Russia, Russia, Russia. Trump, Trump, Trump. Collusion, collusion, collusion.”
“Do you think the news media in this country — and their coverage on this — owes you an apology?” Hannity asked.
“Well, they do owe me an apology — big one,” Trump replied.
“They owe you an apology and all of the people that you mentioned previously and somebody of the other people,” Trump added.
“I’m not holding my breath,” Hannity interjected.
“We actually had a lot of support,” Trump argued. “I watch you and Tucker and I watch Laura and your great guys in the morning with Steve and Ainsley and Brian. Brian came a long way, I kid him, but he came a long way. And so many other people.”
“Not only on Fox, in all fair news. But you look at Jesse has been so great. Just so many people,” Trump said, also mentioning The Washington Times.
“We have far more support than people understand. If we didn’t, I wouldn’t even be talking to you right now,” Trump admitted. “It would be a total mess.”
The Washington Post and New York Times weren’t the only publications to draw Trump’s ire.
“I think NBC is more corrupt than CNN if that’s possible,” Trump argued. “I think they were more hostile frankly than CNN which is hard to believe.”
“But this fake, fake, horrible stuff — nobody can believe how dishonest they have been,” he added.
Also on Thursday, it was reported Hannity is considering leaving Fox News for being insufficiently subservient to Trump.

Trump ripped as a ‘traitor’ by veterans for his mask photo-op at Walter Reed Hospital
The veteran advocacy organization Vote Vets on Sunday blasted President Donald Trump for holding a photo-op at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
After a round of golf on Saturday, Trump traveled to the hospital to be photographed by the press pool wearing a mask, which was a first since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Vote Vets, which says it has raised over $120 million since being founded in 2006 and made over 50 million voter contacts, released a new video on Trump's visit.
The ad says it shows "what wounded warriors see when Trump comes for a photo-op."
