Unable to tweet his thoughts, former President Donald Trump put out a tweet-sized statement celebrating Lou Dobbs after he was canceled by Fox Business.
"Fox News has canceled "Lou Dobbs Tonight," the program hosted by television's staunchest supporter of Donald Trump and of his assertions of voter fraud in the 2020 election, The Times has learned. Dobbs' program, which airs twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. Eastern on the Fox Business Network, will have its final airing Friday, according to a Fox News representative who confirmed the cancellation," the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.
Trump voiced his support for Dobbs on Friday evening.
"Lou Dobbs is and was great. Nobody loves America more than Lou," Trump argued. "He had a large and loyal following that will be watching closely for his next move, and that following includes me."

Lusk, 57, is serving a prison sentence for drug possession.
The settlement stipulates that the Minnesota Department of Corrections (DOC) must adopt new procedures, ensuring the safety and appropriate accommodation of transgender inmates. Policies include housing inmates based on their gender identity, providing necessary medical care such as hormone therapy, and prohibiting harassment or discrimination.
Lusk will receive $495,000 as part of the settlement, which includes $250,000 in legal fees.
"With this settlement, the Department of Corrections takes an important and necessary step toward fulfilling its responsibilities to the people in its care," Gender Justice Legal Director Jess Braverman, the organization that represented Lusk in the case, told NPR.
"Thanks to Christina Lusk's willingness to speak out, transgender people in custody will now have expanded access to the housing and health care they need, and the legal protections they deserve," Braverman added.
This case and its settlement carry national implications. It puts pressure on correctional systems across the country to reevaluate their treatment of transgender inmates.
Lusk is now being transferred to a women's facility. The legal victory is seen as a major step in the fight for transgender rights within the U.S correctional system.
