President Donald Trump harshly criticized and mocked three Fox News anchors in a tweet on Sunday.

"Were @FoxNews weekend anchors, @ArthelNeville and @LelandVittert, trained by CNN prior to their ratings collapse?,” the president wrote. “In any event, that’s where they should be working, along with their lowest rated anchor, Shepard Smith!”

It was unclear what sparked Trump’s outburst. At the time the president was tweeting, a rerun of "Fox News Sunday" was on the air, according to The Hill.

However, Shepard Smith has several times pointed out Trump’s inaccurate statements during his presidency.

Trump is a frequent watcher of Fox News and often tweets out quotes from several programs on the network.

Trump’s attack on the three Fox News anchors came after he earlier in the day urged the network to "stay strong and fight back with vigor" and not cave in to left-wing campaigns to silence leading hosts like Judge Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson,, who have faced criticism in recent days for controversial remarks.

The president regularly slams news outlets for coverage he considers unfavorable, although he has rarely targeted Fox.
