In a recent interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Trump said he doesn’t want to be “bullied” by Carlson.
Trump also made a reference to the media during his interview, saying, “I’ve been in so many things, I don’t even know what to call it, but it’s a very, very, really bad business.”

“I think the media has a disease, and it’s just like a fungus,” Trump said.
“It’s an awful disease.”
Trump said the media’s obsession with him stems from the fact that he’s a “different kind of leader” than the one who ran the country for eight years.
Trump said it’s “a very unhealthy, unhealthy thing” for the press to obsess over him.
“I don’t think that it’s healthy for them to be doing that,” Trump told Hayes.
“And that’s not to say that it won’t be good for the country, but I think it’s unhealthy for the people.”
Trump told Hannity that he is “not looking to be bullied” by the media.
