President Trump: ESPN's ratings 'tanked' because of Jemele Hill

ESPN said in a statement Monday that Hill had acknowledged "letting her colleagues and company down" with the Trump tweet.

What Hill does do, however, is allow Trump to rile up his base and suggest that the liberal media is attacking him with all those "fake news" stories about the real problems America is facing. Trump jumped back into the subject this morning by attacking Hill and ESPN on Twitter.

In what continues to be a PR quagmire for ESPN, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to more or less do a victory lap in the wake of ESPN's two-week suspension of Jemele Hill for tweets suggesting a boycott of Dallas Cowboys' sponsors. She also added that Trump has mostly bounded himself with a lot of other white supremacists.

In response, the White House called for her to be fired.
